Korea's Pohang University of Science and Technology researchers have developed a robot that performs about 70 different blood tests so far, with the ability of 100 by next year. The 1.6 meter tall bot has a built-in reagent dispenser, protein detector, and software to do its thing. While this is only a prototype at this stage, the scientists are hoping to release it to the general public by 2012.
