Transcript of Nanobots Curing Blindness

So far these nanobots have only been tested on pigs, and human cadavers. Nanobots were made/discovered in 1959 when a scientist sent a tiny robot he he had made through a 64th of an inch clear tube.
Nanobots Curing Blindness
Nanobots, more commonly known as nanorobots, are microscopic robots that hold the future of human engineering and medical work. Nanobots are already being used to make extreme sun-screen, stain removers, and much more. Nanobots range in size from 0.1 to 10 micrometers, in the range of a red blood cell. (6-8 μm.)
Nanobot Info
Scientists and researchers are claiming that by 2030 to 2040 we could be able to eliminate age, disease, fatigue, and much more, basically immortal as some over viewers are saying. Scientists say that we will be able to achieve this by creating reverse engineered brains for ourselves. Kurzwell states that by 2030 we will able to send billions of these nanobots into patients heads, and completely map out the human brain.
Future of Nanobots
These small micro bots enter the body by an injection with a 23 gauge needle. A normal needle at a doctors office ranges from 23-25 gauges...usually. They carry a special medication intended to cure the loss of sight, or the tools to remove scarred tissue
How They Enter
Getting the micro bots inside of the blind patient is the easy part, removing them sometimes can be difficult. Scientists have to fish them out of the eye, or move them out through the same spot they were injected into the eye.
These nanobots will travel to the eye, and depending on what the cause of the loss of sight is, go to the retina and begin working. If the patient has been blind for a long time, they can repair molecular structures and tissue damage. If their eye has stopped receiving oxygen recently, they can carry a drug and release it near the retina. Causes of this can be diseases such as glaucoma, which stop oxygen from reaching the eye.
How They Work
Real or Fake?
Many people think these new nanobots are just a concept, a good idea, but ithey're not real yet, but that is not true. Researchers at the Institute of Robotics in Zurich have already made electromagnetically controlled nanobots for this purpose. Nanobots in the near future will be able to do much more than we think.
