Scientists at MIT have invented a miraculous new robot which can mend internal injuries after being swallowed. It’s a great leap forward for surgery – but will patients be able to stomach the cure?

It has long been thought that nanotechnology could make doctors’ lives easier, but now a team from MIT have taken a big step towards making this idea a reality. “The challenge with designing an ingestible robot is finding bio-compatible materials” – in this case meat and ice – explains the robot’s co-creator, Daniela Rus.
