The current treatment for root canals focuses on reducing bacterial loads. After instrumentation and irrigation, however, the canals of the tooth are filled with synthetic materials – with the possibility that the infecting bacteria colonies are not fully eliminated. That can leave the tooth susceptible to persistent infections. <small>([https://www.utoronto.ca/news/u-t-researcher-develops-nanosystem-promotes-regeneration-after-root-canals More])</small>

Researchers in California have developed a robot that has multi-joint legs and propeller-based thrusters allowing it to jump, skateboard and walk on a slackline
Researchers at Caltech have built a bipedal robot that combines walking with flying to create a new type of locomotion, making it exceptionally nimble and capable of complex movements.

Part walking robot, part flying drone, the newly developed LEONARDO (short for LEgs ONboARD drOne, or LEO for short) can walk a slackline, hop, and even ride a skateboard. Developed by a team at Caltech's Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST), LEO is the first robot that uses multi-joint legs and propeller-based thrusters to achieve a fine degree of control over its balance.

A paper about the LEO robot was published online on October 6 and was featured on the cover of Science Robotics. (More)
