DNAProgrammed DNA origami nanobot kills cancer in mice

Arizona State University (ASU) scientists, in collaboration with researchers from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST), of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, have successfully programmed nanorobots to shrink tumors by cutting off their blood supply. Above – Nanorobots …

DNA nanotechnologyDNA nanobot created that performs nanomechanical tasks

Since the 1980s, the design and synthesis of molecular machines has been identified as a grand challenge for molecular engineering. Robots are an important type of molecular machine that automatically carry out complex nanomechanical tasks. DNA molecules are excellent materials …

DNA nanotechnologyRNA circuits transform cells into nanodevices with 12 input logic

In new research, Alex Green, an assistant professor at ASU’s Biodesign Institute, demonstrates how living cells can be induced to carry out computations in the manner of tiny robots or computers. The results of the new study have significant implications …

The Office of Naval Research and Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, conduct the first shot of the Railgun at the terminal range November 17, 2016. There are also current tests of with an Army Howitzer is now firing a …

bloodstream robotsGeneral Atomics doubles the energy density in power supply for railguns

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) announced today that it has developed a High Energy Pulsed Power Container (HEPPC) that provides twice the energy density than existing railgun pulsed power solutions. The HEPPC can reduce the number of pulsed power containers …

alzheimer'sScientists claim maximum human lifespan is 115 years despite records of person living to 122 years and 164 days

Nature study claims maximum human lifespan is 115 years in spite of Jeanne Calment living to 122 years. The 115-year claim is too much for Prof James Vaupel, the director of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. He described …

DNA nanotechnologyThought Controlled Nanoscale DNA Robots and micron scale wireless neural dust brain monitoring will combine for ultraprecise control of nanobots

There are three emerging technologies that will interact to enable precise release of medication based on conditions in the brain. 1. DNA nanobots with metal nanoparticles (this already can release drugs in living things based on EEG monitored conditions) 2. …

DNA nanotechnologyThought-Controlled Nanoscale DNA Robots in a Living Host

Ido Bachelet and his team have made a new type of brain-machine interface enabling a human operator to control nanometer-size robots inside a living animal by brain activity. Recorded EEG patterns are recognized online by an algorithm, which in turn …

DNAGuaranteed basic income is not happening – Attack your debt and multi generation and multi-family living

Switzerland has rejected the policy of guaranteed basic income by 77% to 22%. It will years before it comes up for a vote again and it will likely take at least 20 years before the vote would flip from a …
