Virus based molecular assembler helps researchers build next gen batteries

Virus based molecular assembler helps researchers build next gen batteries

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Nature is fantastic at assembling, well, everything, so scientists are trying to harness nature’s smallest “life forms” to try to create the first molecular assemblers.   Interested in the Exponential Future?

Researchers unveil the world’s first programable DNA computer prototype

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF The future of computing isn’t silicon, it isn’t even quantum, it’s biological, and it’s coming.   We’ve already turned bacteria into computing and storage devices that we’ve used to re-play videos from, and perform basic calculations, but just like tomorrow’s Biological computers DNA too, it’s...

World’s first DNA robots successfully move and deliver molecule sized cargo

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Robots are getting smaller, and our mastery over biology is increasing, so it’s inevitable that we will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible and create a new breed of smaller, intelligent micro-machines.   In the classic 1966 American science fiction film Fantastic Voyage, a...

BAE’s trials a molecular assembler that one day will grow drones in the field

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Growing your own products just became a thing.   If you needed to be convinced just how fast technology is progressing then think of this. For Millennia humans have assembled individual, pre crafted components together to make products of every shape and form. In 1986...
