An assembly of thousands of nano-machines has produced a coordinated contraction movement – like that of muscle fibers, and it even extended to around ten micrometers, like the movements of muscular fibers.

The work provides an experimental validation of a biomimetic approach that has been conceptualized for years in nanoscience and the researchers believe this broadens applications in robotics, information storage and obviously artificial muscles themselves.
