Brain-machine interfaces could one day help monitor and treat symptoms of neurological disorders, provide a blueprint to design artificial intelligence, or even enable brain-to-brain communication. But, to achieve the reachable and the quixotic, devices need a way to literally dive deeper into cells to perform reconnaissance. Now, researchers have designed a way to make a nanoscale army that could speed efforts to find out what's happening inside our cells.
