"Researchers at the NanoRobotics Laboratory of the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, in Canada, are putting swarms of bacteria to work, using them to perform micro-manipulations and even propel microrobots."

So thats how the built the pyramids!! Where can I pick myself up a couple million of these and the computer to control them

All joking aside, It's crazy what they are now able to do with technology. They are using magnets along with a computer to make bacteria move and perform tasks. What will they think of next.

Not sure what the next step is, but I know what the target is for the short term.
