Morphing 3D-printed objects move by magnetism

Some day, it may be possible for tiny squishy biomedical robots to make their way through people's bodies, without being tethered to an external power supply or control unit. We've recently gotten a step closer to that being a reality, thanks to 3D-printing tech that produces magnetically-responsive devices...
