Carnegie Mellon brings adhesive arms to the burgeoning pillbot scene

We've seen plenty of pill bots in our day -- most of the dumb little swallowable cameras -- but Carnegie Mellon University isn't messing around with this stuff. The nerds over there have built a remote controlled pillbot with small, adhesive arms that allow it to grip onto internal surfaces. That is to say, your internal surfaces. The pill can view damaged areas, deliver drugs and might eventually be outfitted with a small laser for cauterizing internal wounds. Yes, we just said lasers.
