Xenobots: The first live robots are a fact

The xenobots, named after the African frog (Xenopus laevis), are self-healing nanorobots, designed on a supercomputer and then assembled into new life-forms that are several millimeters long, small enough to be introduced into the human body.

They are made of skin cells, heart cells and stem cells harvested from frog embryos.

The Xenobots can move on their own on one goal, walk and swim, survive for weeks without food and work in groups, self-heal and continue to work.

Use of Xenobots

Xenobots can be used for the purification of radioactive waste, the collection of microplastics in the oceans, the transport of drugs to human bodies or even for the cleaning of arteries.
