They have created “mini-factories” that can be programmed to produce different types of proteins and, when implanted into living cells, it should distribute those proteins throughout the body. The scientists have initially triggered these “factories” into action through the use of a laser light to relay the message of which proteins to produce.

The medical functions of this technology is nearly endless in treating and perhaps curing numerous diseases, from diabetes to cancer. Insulin pumps have come a long way, including the current wireless models, but the diabetic still have to wear some sort of external device. If patients could just have an internal apparatus that could communicate with their smartphone or some other wireless remote to monitor it’s functions, it could be an almost carefree solution to such a cumbersome disease.

In its simplest form, this breakthrough would mean no more forgetting to take that daily, life-sustaining pill for the older generation or treating at-risk infants without having to continuously stick them with a needle. It will be exciting to see how this nanotechnology can progress, just as long as it is kept away from the Borgs or soldiers of Cobra.
