A micro-submarine travels through a human artery. The submarine was made by a micro technology firm in Duisburg, Germany, using a technique by which three-dimensional objects can be created directly from a computer program, by means of laser beams. Equipped with appropriate instruments, such submarines will in future be able to detect defects in internal organs.
