Colored SEM image showing micro robots named ‘PolyMites’, arranged on a waver plate.  They are the next generation of MagMites (magnetic mite robots). The PolyMites are not released from silicon wafer yet. In the end the robots will have a round shape without the two bars which hold each robot in place on the waver plate. In the future, similar devices will be used in surgery whenever operative contact are too difficult or risky, for example in the treatment of a patient with complications of the retinal cell layer inside the human eye.
