Microtubular devices (MDs) with outstanding properties are self-assembled on-chip into fully functional and integrative three-dimensional architectures. This makes them attractive for a broad range of applications and scientific research fields ranging from energy storage to reproduction technologies. MDs are used to construct compact energy storage devices as well as sensitive advanced electronic circuitry, nanophotonic cavities, sensors and optofluidic components towards implementation of lab-in-a-tube systems. They are also useful to study basic mechanisms of single cancer and stem cell migration, growth and mitosis in realistic 3D confined environments. Off-chip applications include biomimetic microelectronics for regenerative cuff implants and the development of hybrid microbiorobotic motors for paradigm shifting reproduction technologies. Cellular cyborg machinery is put forth as a novel scheme for targeted drug delivery and cancer treatment.
