Honey, I shrunk the robotic inchworm
Researchers from Dartmouth College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have made tiny mobile robots that are steerable...

Nano wireless
Fireflies, heart cells and pendulum clocks synchronize with others of their kind. The same turns out to be true for nanoscale electromagnets, which can be used to transmit and receive microwaves...

RNA nanotech takes on cancer
One of the great hopes for biomedical nanotechnology is that it could lead to cancer treatments that are more effective and less harmful than today's chemical and radiation therapies...

Physics finds file-folder formula
Natural networks like predator-prey relationships, social networks like jazz musician collaborations, and artificial networks like the Internet all have a scale-free structure...

Bits and pieces
Crystal nanomotors, shape-shifting film, and built-in supercapacitors.


View from the High Ground:
Georgia Tech's Ronald Arkin

The economics of labor, making robots as reliable as cars, getting robots to trust people, biorobotics, finding the boundaries of intimate relationships with robots, how much to let robots manipulate people, giving robots a conscience, robots as humane soldiers and The Butlerian Jihad.

How It Works: Two schools of cryptography
There are two approaches to securing information: extremely difficult mathematical problems and the randomness of nature. Both count on the limits of technology.

Room temp ice
Experiments have proved that it is possible to freeze water at room temperature using energy to trigger hydrogen to bond in the way needed for crystallization. What's more, the phenomenon uses considerably less energy than had been predicted. The catch is that this type of freezing only happens in nanoscale spaces...

"Funding of course enables discoveries, but does not guarantee they will occur. Lack of funding can almost certainly guarantee that discoveries will not be made."
