Structure of a Microscale Rocket

While “rocket” might not be the most accurate description of this emerging technology, these tiny devices are going to change the medical industry forever. Microscale rockets are devices that are about the size of a particle of dust and 3D printed using laser lithography. A bubble inside the rocket paired with ultrasound waves act as a motor and allow for the rocket to move about the body. It also has the ability to move cells and particles with precision. The goal of the product is to navigate the body on cellular level for the purpose of diagnosing diseases and administering medicine.
