DNA origami could lead to nano 'transformers' for biomedical applications

Tiny hinges and pistons hint at possible complexity of future nano-robots

07-Jan-2015

If the new nano-machines built at The Ohio State University look familiar, it's because they were designed with full-size mechanical parts such as hinges and pistons in mind. The project is the first to prove that the same basic design principles that apply to typical full-size machine parts can ...
