# Why can't motors be as elegant as human muscles? Why do we have to use electromagnetism to create movement?

Pretty much as the title says. Why isn't it possible to build motors as microscopically and simply as they're built in humans? Why can't we recreate electronic nerves and muscles?

• Why isn't it possible, Why can't we .... why are you making the assumption that it is not possible? .......... Why do we have to use electromagnetism to create movement? what about hydraulically operated heavy equipment? – jsotola Feb 14 '19 at 21:41
