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. Led by Professor Sylvain Martel, the researchers want to use flagellated bacteria to carry drugs into tumors, act as sensing agents for detecting pathogens, and operate micro-factories that could perform pharmacological and genetic tests. They also want to use the bacteria as micro-workers for building things. Things like a tiny step pyramid.





This is what I call amazing! This article was posted in March and I'm surprised no one posted this article yet. It is truly a miracle seeing these little miracles make a big miracle.

Here is a video from youtube of the bacteria in action! Again this amazing.
Look how they group to build the much larger pyramid.
