Scientists have created living robots from stem cells

The research team managed to develop robots built exclusively from living stem cells. Called “xenobots”, they can perform a variety of functions, from moving and manipulating objects to collective behavior. Their creation promises significant development in the field of biology and medicine. However, this also involves potential serious risks, since the researchers themselves recognize that experiments with living cells create opportunities for unintended consequences.
