Rising to the top
Here's a challenge: Build a pump that can deliver a drug to you automatically when you're sick. Now make it smaller than a penny. And make it accurate enough that you can guarantee it won't pump one microliter more than prescribed amount (otherwise it might kill you). Now make it cheap enough to mass-produce for millions of people and make sure it runs on a tiny battery. Think you can do it?
