Killer Nanobots are Here to Help
![achiral_microswimmer-copy.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmWJ2zaUW65QYKMv8b24XdNNidqMhAWdC3LyEvL6iKQoZU/achiral_microswimmer-copy.jpg)
<a href="http://fortune.com/2016/01/12/artery-clearing-nanobot/"><i>Fortune.com</i></a>

Tiny mechanisms that can drill into cell walls, either to ease the introduction of drugs, mechanically remove plaques, or just kill the cell, have been crafted.  Yay!  At least they're not self-replicating.  

While I can certainly see that this isn't necessarily a bad thing, and can do good things, I can also see that weapons made this way are utterly without defense.  There isn't any way I can think of to secure ourselves from hordes of nanobots programmed to drill into our cells, and turn us into red goo.  At least there seems to be limitations on how these devices are powered, making them presently impractical as genocidal weapons.

This isn't a permanent solution, however.  While the developers are seeking means of crafting useful therapeutic tools, as is so often the case in science, those tools also have military applications - not to mention being quite suitable for plain old terrorism (or it's synonym, government).

Have a watch, and marvel!

early days yet.
One of the best arguments I've heard in a long time to avoid the sun.
UV kills...(well...it powers killer nanobots doesn't it?  Same thing)

I sense a cautionary short story...

Scientist spills nanobots in the lab, and washes most of the spill off.  After work meets with some folks at the beach, and dissolves into a pile of goo before their eyes.

Eww.
