The microscopic nanomotors were directed and controlled using ultrasonic waves and magnetic force. The researchers found that they were capable of directing any number of nanomotors to perform any number of tasks in a single cell or multiple cells at the same time.

This research using gold-ruthenium nanomotors has overcome the toxic chemical effects of the first nanomotors produced in 2004.
