"Molecular Motors" are Mother Nature's one of the most wonderfully Engineered Products. The rotating shaft in such nanometric motors rotate as a result of the Chemical Concentration Differential as it's potential driving Force. Such motors are expected to be (and /or can be designed to be ) "Bio-Compatible" with the Human (or Animal) body environment/s.
Miniature Robots which can almost (or virtually) non-invasively penetrate the Human (or Animal) Skin, Flesh and Body and can carry out the Designed, Desired- Designated tasks (inside the body) have been of great Global R & D interest. Recently, design of Micro-Nanometric Cells called "BANC": (Biomedical Artificial Nanometric Cells) have been reported which can be a) Introduced (or trooped in ) in the Body (through the Skin Pores) in large multitudes in an almost non-invasive manner and then b) Assembled (or Organized) in a order to form a desired (Implantable) Pattern or a System to perform a desired Task and ultimately c) If necessary, De-Assembled back in miniature micro cellular Units and d) Withdrawn (or trooped out) again in an almost or virtual noninvasive fashion.
Movements, assembly and disassembly of such BANC Cells can be carried out using different kinds of Energy Sources. Micro-Processor based Programmable Electromagnetic Field Impulses is reported as one such viable possibility.
"Molecular Motors" is another very attractive Energy source, which can be Designed to provide "Energy" for such requirements. It can at least be used as a most suitable alternative for certain typical tasks.
This Paper gives a brief description of the BANC based Nano-metric Robotic possibilities and then discusses (-describes ) the "Potential" of utilization of the "Molecular Motors" for such applications.
