Q&A: Jiao Niandong on turning tiny, living things into tiny, perfect robots

We directed light beams on the films.
We used the hydraulic force to confine, direct and manipulate movement of algae cells.
Why algae?
How does the alga swim?
[Microrobots] can also work as construction workers to build complex structures such as bioactuator and biological chips.
When an alga rotates, as we demonstrated in the experiment, it becomes a motor.
With the help of artificial intelligence, will robots replace humans one day?
The best way to ease the panic is to visit a robotic research facility and see how robots work.
So our micro/nano lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory with researchers from many different disciplines working together.
We put different technologies together to see how they work under a microscope.
