By 2030, the healthcare industry might have a powerful tech tool in the form of organic microbots derived from algae to easily reach into any corner of the human body and deliver effective treatment.

The technology marks a big advance in medical technology given the smooth mobility and better control over microbots as they haul drugs deeper into the body, writes Futurism.

Microbots, yet to enter clinical trials for a number of parameters, apparently address existing challenges by offering biocompatibility and other capabilities that conventional solutions lack, notes Nature
