X-philes will remember that in season 6, episode “S.R. 819,” Krycek infected A.D. Skinner’s blood with Nanobots, and how awesome & scary that was.

Well, now look:

"Many experts have high hopes for nano-machines in treating disease.

"If [in the future] you want to remotely operate on a tumour you might want to send some molecular machines there," explained Dr Anirban Bandyopadhyay of the International Center for Young Scientists, Tsukuba, Japan.

"But you cannot just put them into the blood and [expect them] to go to the right place."

Dr Bandyopadhyay believes his device may offer a solution. One day they may be able to guide the nanobots through the body and control their functions, he said.

"That kind of device simply did not exist; this is the first time we have created a nano-brain," he told BBC News."

And we’re all one step closer to Cyborg City.
