Video/AnimationSLIPS‘SLIPS’ technology, inspired by the slippery pitcher plant that repels almost every type of liquid and solid, is a unique approach to coating industrial and medical surfaces that is based on nano/microstructured porous material infused with a lubricating fluid. By locking in water and other fluids, SLIPS technology creates slick, exceptionally repellent and robust self-cleaning...
Video/AnimationVibrating Mattress: Preventing Infant ApneaWhat if we could prevent infant apnea? Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationMaking Structures with DNA “Building Blocks”Researchers at the Wyss Institute have developed a method for building complex nanostructures out of short synthetic strands of DNA. Called single-stranded tiles (SSTs), these interlocking DNA “building blocks,” akin to Legos, can be programmed to assemble themselves into precisely designed shapes, such as letters and emoticons.

Video/AnimationMagnetic YeastIn this video, Wyss Core Faculty member Pamela Silver describes how her team at the Wyss Institute and Harvard Medical School induced magnetic sensitivity in a non-magnetic organism. This technology could potentially be used to magnetize a variety of different cell types in medical, industrial and research applications. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationDNA Nanorobot: Cell-Targeted, Payload-DeliveringThis video describes a cell-targeted, payload-delivering DNA nanorobot developed at the Wyss Institute that can trigger targeted therapeutic responses. This novel technology could potentially seek out cancer cells and cause them to self-destruct. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationTermite-inspired robotsInspired by termites and their building activities, the TERMES project is working toward developing a swarm construction system in which robots cooperate to build 3D structures much larger than themselves. The current system consists of simple but autonomous mobile robots and specialized passive blocks; the robot is able to manipulate blocks to build tall structures,...
