South Korean researchers have just unknowingly enabled the coming robot uprising. They have developed a microscopic robot that is powered by heart muscle cells.

The itsy-bitsy E-shaped robot is powered by "growing heart muscle tissue from a rat onto tiny robotic skeletons made from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)," which moves its legs by "relaxing and contracting of heart muscle cells."

They see the robot crawling through clogged arteries to clean them, but TheFeed knows better. One day all of humanity will wake up with robots in their hearts and murder on their minds.
