Abstract
Putting the thread through the eye of a needle is a very ordinary issues in daily life. The mechanism of putting the thread through the eye of a needle is quite similar to threading a series of polymer chains through synthetic macrocycle in bioscience. A new rubbing approach to thread through the eye of a needle was proposed in this paper, and its potential application in the fields of biomechanics and mechanobiology to mimic the micro scale assembly processes was discussed.
Keywords
