It’s interesting that Scientists create miniature machine parts from DNA.
From the article
In the latest phase of the nanotechnology revolution, scientists have built a collection of minuscule objects from DNA, including toothed gears, curved tubes, and a wireframe beach ball five millionths of a centimetre in diameter.
The building blocks of DNA can be made to assemble themselves, piece by piece, into a structure designed by the researcher.
That’s weird, you can create toothed gears from DNA? This makes DNA sound like a programming language and gears sound like an efficient design pattern. I’m surprised we don’t have these Read more…
