A possible top-down path to atomically precise manufacturing that passes through microscale machinery might be rendered easier because of recent progress in suppressing the Casimir force, which contributes to the 'stiction' problem often encountered with microelectromechanical systems.

There's a nice article over at the Singularity Hub that's a round-up of currently-available haptics devices.  They seem primarily excited over the prospects of haptics in gaming, but there are [...]
