This reads like an amazing new tool for use in scientific researchers, I don't understand all the tech talk on this since I am a hillbilly but this tool sounds cool

The wonder of science often comes from the endless possibilities opened up by each successive discovery and the unexpected findings that result. Scientists at the University of Bristol now have a new tool that will yield yet more and unprecedented levels of information – and crucially, without disturbing the natural, physical state of the object under scrutiny.

The past few months have seen physicists at Bristol’s Interface Analysis Centre vying for time on the dualbeam instrument, which as centre Director Dr. Tom Scott says, “unlocks the key to a whole new world”.

In biochemistry, researchers are looking at making actuators - “gold sandwiches” with a polymer filling which could swim through the bloodstream, collecting information that could be used to inform medical approaches to human disease.

So with big brother already a control freak in our daily lives, he can now get inside our bodies. I can see a lot cool toys and capabilities arise from this technology, also a lot of risks.
