What Robots Can Do inside of You [Video]

We have reported about the Origami Robots before, but now we got a new use for this type of technology. About 3,500 button batteries are reported to be swallowed every year only in the U.S. and there might be a new way to help out in this type of scenario. In this video from the MIT by Melanie Gonick, Daniela Rus explains how the ingestible origami robot works and how it could be used to find and remove metallic foreign objects especially when they are hazardous. This is a great way to leverage novel technology especially to help children with special medical conditions.
