The robot revolution is coming, in more ways than one. Researchers at Cornell University’s Baker Institute for Animal Health are taking a page from nature and modeling nanobots after life’s little workhorse – sperm. Sperm are the model of efficiency, able to swim 7 iph (inches per hour) or the equivalent of a full grown man swimming a record-breaking 3.7 mph. These techno-sperm will incorporate the sperm’s tail, or flagellum, for locomotion and the high-energy compound ATP as a power source.
