It seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie. But nanobots are not the construct of some wild movie or theory.

They are instead, scientific fact and are reinventing technology as we know it. In many ways, they work in a similar fashion to ant colonies, and in fact, the scientists who created them have taken their inspiration from just that.

Diamagnetic Micro Manipulation (DM3) uses tiny magnets that move under a circuit board, to get the micro-robots to follow a set pattern based on a set of preprogrammed instructions.

Essentially what you end up with is a busy swarm of nanobots swarming around, piecing together mechanical hardware and electronic circuits.

Occasionally, they work individually or in pairs, but they can also be programmed to work as a whole colony of nanobots all whizzing around together and doing whatever it is they were intended to do.

They may be small, but these mini-machines can move up to a foot in a single second, and deliver supplies or carry out other tasks swiftly.

The manufacturer’s behind these bots hinted that they can be used in micro-chipping applications, making products, recording conversations and used in laboratories and military applications.

A pretty scary thought indeed.

The financing for these nanobots comes from the military and is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (Darpa) manufacturing program.

Darpa is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new weapons to be used by the military.

SRI International – the agency responsible for conducting contract research and development for government agencies said that the main use of the bots which can also travel up walls – and get pretty much anywhere – will be for “advanced manipulation”.
