Bioengineering is taking technology to the next level. Combining living cellular components with three-dimensional scaffolds, researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Northwestern University have created what they are calling eBiobots. These first-of-its-kind creations can generate motion and can be used to develop a new generation of miniature robots. With the development of this latest version of eBiobots, a new path has been opened toward a class of biohybrid machines.
