Forklifts for Nanoconstruction

Mr_Farlops writes "Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories have developed lipids that can grab and carry other molecules as they dart about on an artificial membrane that mimics those found in cells. Producing such a process is not novel however, the methods used to examine it and the insights gained from such examinations are. Because the movement of the lipids appears to be predictable and easy to control, the researchers speculate that such processes can be harnessed to aid in the construction of nanoscale devices."
