>These millimeter-wide "xenobots" can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient) -- and heal themselves after being cut.

Very interesting, much could be done with this, I think it could be more important than nano robots.

The concept is nothing particularly new, the problem is whether they can actually do anything, which basically they can't yet. Still pretty cool though, much safer to turn into a weapon than a cell that reproduces.

Imagine shaking someones' hand and watching them turn to dust.
