Microboats to the Rescue

Diagnostics with a Stomach Pill
Gastroscopy usually requires patients to swallow an endoscope tube. Although camera-carrying capsules are also suitable for the task, it is still not possible to control them.

And their tiny capsule-shaped robots can do a lot more than merely take snapshots of the stomach’s interior.
