American engineers from the University of North Carolina and Elon University (USA) developed the moving cilia memory polymer. They can move depending on the light and magnetic field.

Cilia are used by many microorganisms for locomotion in water. “Experience” protozoa scientists can use to create robotic swimmers, writes the journal Advanced Materials Technologies.

the Key aspect of this work is that we demonstrated magnetic cilia with shape memory, the shape of which may be installed, locked, unlocked and re — stated in the material.

During the experiments the cilia filled in the field between the two magnets. The radiation was caused by the self-Assembly of devices, as they coincide with the applied magnetic field.

The experiences of American engineers are not the first in this area. In 2014, colleagues from Kiel University (Germany) has created molecules that mimic the tiny hairlike structures. A promising branch of science can become the basis for the development of nanorobots, able to move through the vessels of a human.

Earlier reported that a group of scientists from Russia and Europe developed the basis for ultra-precise atomic clocks that will be able to find the easy forms of dark matter.
