Medical nanorobots. Computer artwork of nanorobots in a human body targeting red blood cells. One of the aims of nanotechnology is to develop microscopically small probes that could be used to target cancer cells, or deliver specific treatments to certain types of cell. Here, one of the nanorobots has used clamps to attach itself to a red blood cell, and is using a syringe to inject drugs or genetic material. Other nanorobots and red blood cells are seen in the background.
