Drew Berry: Animations of unseeable biology
http://www.ted.com We have no ways to directly observe molecules and what they do -- Drew Berry wants to change that. At TEDxSydney he shows his scientifically accurate (and entertaining!) animations ...
Nobel Prize for chemistry given to developers of molecular machines
Nobel Prize for chemistry given to developers of molecular machines, Sourav Roy has the latest details.
Vanishing Friction
A new technique tunes friction between two surfaces, to the point where friction can vanish. MIT researchers developed a frictional interface at the atomic level. The blue corrugated surface represent...
Could Nanotechnology Stop Us Ageing?
So what is nanotechnology(or nanotech, for the sake of characters), beside just "really small technology"? Well, the official definition is "the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular and supr...
Recently Developed Molecular 3D Printer Will Bring Chemistry Into A New Era
This new machine will greatly benefit drug research and other molecule-based technologies as it helps quicken the process of analyzing different compounds and understanding how they respond to differe...
Tiny swimming bio-bots boldly go where no bot has swum before
The alien world of aquatic micro-organisms just got new residents: synthetic self-propelled swimming bio-bots. Engineers have developed a class of tiny bio-hybrid machines that swim like sperm, the fi...
