The Guardian has released some intriguing microscopic footage of biological ‘xenobots’ or robots being created out of living cells.
Tiny ’xenobots’ made up of living cells have been created by teams of scientists at the University of Vermont and Tufts University using a supercomputer to design them. The millimetre-wide bots could move toward a target and automatically repair themselves and researchers hope they will help clear human arteries, clean microplastics from the oceans and find radioactive waste

Lightning and Ash - Timelapse Footage Shows Taal Volcano Eruption
A video captured from a nearby home in Tagaytay City shows volcanic lightning and a thick ash column erupting from the Taal volcano in the Philippines, published by the Guardian’s YouTube channel.
Flights have been suspended and thousands of people have been ordered to evacuate as the volcano spewed ash 1,000 metres into the sky, prompting a warning from the Philippines of an ’explosive eruption’.
Coloured Footage to Convey Horror of Auschwitz in Channel 4 Documentary
Black and white footage taken inside Nazi concentration camps has been colourised for the first time in a groundbreaking Auschwitz documentary.
Accodring to The Times, the new series aims to make the human cost of the Holocaust more relatable to younger viewers who may have little knowledge of the genocide.
The two-part documentary, which will be broadcast on More 4 this month, includes interviews with 16 Holocaust survivors, now in their eighties and nineties. It is narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley.
It is believed to be the first time black and white footage of concentration camps has been colourised for a TV documentary.
The colourisation of archive film has become a powerful tool in bringing 20th-century history to life for modern audiences.
Sir Peter Jackson’s acclaimed First World War documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, released in 2018, made poignant use of colourised footage to highlight the horror endured by British soldiers in the trenches.
The technique has also been deployed in series such as World War I in Colour, narrated by Sir Kenneth Branagh, and Channel 5’s World War II in Colour.
This is believed to be the first time that black and white footage inside concentration camps has been colourised for a television documentary, although some original colour film was taken in camps at the time.
Channel 4 commissioned the series, which has the working title Auschwitz Untold, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camp by Soviet forces on January 27th, 1945. The programme is produced by Fulwell73.
