So it just occured to me that our immune systems reject foreign entities like diseases and other such objects, whether they be microscopic or a railroad spike through the brain. Wouldn't nanobots in the bloodstream exhibit the same effect? How will we find a way around this?

Lots of research. eventually you can do nanobots who are biologically adaptable.

Thought of this as well. If we had nanobots, there's no reason why we couldn't have them send chemical signals to white blood cells to say "back off."


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

White blood cells aren't really the problem; they're just enforcers. The whole body works to ward off invaders, and sends white blood cells in as a response to attacks. When the body detects foreign bodies, it kicks into "search and destroy" mode and you start to feel like shit. This is what is referred to as "sickness".

 

If we were to work in a mechanism that would repulse white blood cells, the white blood cells wouldn't bother the nanobots, but the body would still ACT sick. Sure you have nanobots that let you shoot lasers from your eyes, but you would be exhausted and feverish and your limbs would ache because your immune system HATES your nanites and keeps sending white blood cells out.

 

I think the only way around this would be tricking the body into thinking the nanites are naturally a part of the body (ideal), or disabling the body's immune system (stupid).

The human body doesn't reject everything. some plastics and many metals can be implanted without problems, and there are coatings that can be used.

 

Our body also live with and cooperate with hundreds of species of bacteria, fungi and virus' our whole lives without loosing it to escalating disease and sickness.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

There are lots of biocompatibile materials. I have good deal of metal in my spine. It's been there for about 15 years now and it's fine :)

The answer is simple:just replace the immune system with something more implant friendly.

i guess its what you define as a nanobot. Genetically modified cells from an individuals body designed to carry out a particular task could be a nanobot that doesn't cause an immune response.

I forgot about stuff like that hehehehe. But theoretically, bodily rejection of nanobots and such could be used as a weapon *cough Deus Ex cough*
