Wireless chips swim through your veins will revolutionalise medical technology.

Stanford electrical engineers have created a tiny wireless chip, driven by magnetic currents, that’s small enough to travel inside the human body. They hope it will someday be used for a wide range of biomedical applications, from delivering drugs to cleaning arteries.

In a few years time, these little devices could be analysing your blood, delivering regular doses of drugs, and even zapping blood clots from your arteries.

Coming soon: microscopic drone bots breaking down plaque in your coronary arteries.
