Microfluidics and Planktonic Animals
Modern trends in engineering include designing machines so tiny that these machines (1) can be incorporated into bodies and (2) can handle minute amounts of fluids. Planktonic animals have fulfilled these criteria for eons (at least 500,000,000 years). They are often parasites that handle small amounts of fluids to feed on the suspended material in these volumes. Engineers call this type of science Microfluidics.
