"The Proteus motor, named after Fantastic Voyage's microscopic vessel, uses an E. coli-like flagellum to swim through the bloodstream. The goal is to one day have it power microbots that'll enter the body by injection to take photos, deliver medicine and eventually do surgery." See the article here.
