MIT engineers have developed a thread-like robot that can actively glide through narrow, winding pathways, such as the vasculature of the brain. This magnetically-controlled device is a hydrogel-coated robotic thread or guide wire that could be used to deliver clot-reducing therapies and other treatments in response to certain brain blockages,… Continue Reading Robo-thread
