If you had heard/seen articles that discuss the distant future of medicine – you would have heard of these tiny robots that get into your system, detect the problem and rectify the problem. I always thought they would be something like the transformers that would transform themselves into different things depending on where they are in the system and what they are doing. Like being a blood cell when in the blood, a neurotransmitter when in the brain etc. Watch this video, to visualize what I mean. This video will explain how it is going to be done.

When I was reading this article on Technology review that talks of a gene probe for brain damage which is present in eye drops, I thought may be my dream is not too distant.
