Yan, Seeman explain nanoscale robotics

Space Daily's Charles Choi has an interview with chemists Hao Yan of Arizona State and Nadrian Seeman of NYU. "Imagine if you have self-assembled arrays from DNA and incorporate robots into them, you can have them all working together, for instance, in a device that could control medical reactions in the body," Yan told Nano World…"You wouldn't have these DNA robots just running around, but rather as components in nanofactories the same way that on a larger scale you (use) robots to make cars," Seeman clarified…"Of course, you still need to figure out how to incorporate these self-assembled arrays and nanorobots together," Yan added. "That's a challenging problem." Indeed.
