Scientists have invented artificial pores as small as the ones in your cells — something unimaginable until now. These sub-nanometre synthetic pores are so tiny that they can distinguish between ions of different substances, just like a real cell.

It’s an amazing engineering feat. Once they tune them to detect different substances, researchers claim that this seemingly miraculous matter would be able to do truly incredible things, from “purifying water to kill tumors and diseases by regulating the substances inside of cells.”
