Roland Piquepaille writes "The idea of using nanorobots to deliver drugs and fight diseases such as cancers is not new (check this story for example). But there are still lots of issues to solve before nanorobots can diagnose our diseases and treat them. Now, an international team of researchers has designed a software and hardware platform of a nanorobot to be used in medical applications. The researchers think their nanorobots could become available around 2015. But read more for additional references and pictures of nanorobots in action."
