Robot Crawls Through Human Body
Moving a step closer to "Fantastic Voyage," researchers at the Technion have developed a micro robot that can crawl through the human body. The robot is propelled by micro legs, a mechanism especially adapted to the movements of a tiny body through water. It is only a millimeter in diameter and 14 millimeters long, fitting on the tip of a finger, so it can get into the body's smallest areas.

Mikvah Water Project: A Different Type of Renewal
Researchers are involved in a pilot project to recycle gray water gathered from the showers at a mikvah (ritual bath) in Jerusalem. If successful, it could someday lead to a nationwide program that conserves anywhere from 6.6 billion to 13.2 billion gallons of water per year in Israel alone.
