Put a Little Muscle into It

Inside your body, bacteria whip their spiral-like "tails," or flagella, to zip from place to place. Doctors would love to harness this nanotechnology to send remote-controlled nanobots into human bodies and target diseases such as cancer. But researchers have discovered that they can't simply miniaturize standard engines. In addition to small motors, they have to put some muscle into it -- artificial muscle, that is. According to Revelation 4:11, a choir around God's throne declares that all honor belongs to Him for His amazing creation. The evidence of His handiwork extends all the way down to bacteria. While doctors still cannot fully copy the locomotor ability of bacteria, researchers have already pumped out some promising designs.

To make a nanobot move, you face two challenges. You need a form of locomotion and a way to energize it. Researchers recently flexed some brainpower to discover a way to do both by taking the bacteria's flagellum and adding a twist.
