This article presents an overview of recent developments in artificial bacterial flagella (ABFs) and discusses challenges and opportunities in pursuing applications. These helical swimmers possess several advantageous characteristics, such as high swimming velocity and precise motion control indicating their potential for diverse applications. One application is the manipulation of small objects within liquid, which is the focus of this review. Preliminary results have shown that ABFs are… CONTINUE READING
