    At least they got the size scale about right. The only application I can think of for such a device (as depicted) would be searching for cells infected with malaria causing Plasmodium in the merozoite stage and delivering concentrated drugs that block their metabolism or kill them.

    But where the heck are the motors?

    Looking at the illustration, I see no propulsion. How does this thing get around?
