Science: Swallowed a battery?...help is on the way


The Economist reports of the creation of a little robot type structure that can be swallowed and guided to accidentally swallowed batteries (before you ask 'is this even a thing?', it is - apparantly 3,500 Americans swallow batteries each year). The little origami robot finds and wraps itself around the battery and is then guided through the rest of its digestive journey, so to speak. Pretty amazing stuff.
