DNA nanotechnologyOriginal Patent details on DNA Origami Molecular buckets which enables nanomedicine

Ido Bachelet, Shawn Douglas and George Church filed a patent in 2011 for DNA origami devices useful in the targeted delivery of biologically active entities to specific cell populations. This is the patent for the DNA nanorobot for molecular precise …

DNAPetahertz optical drive with wide-bandgap semiconductor

High-speed photonic and electronic devices at present rely on radiofrequency electric fields to control the physical properties of a semiconductor, which limits their operating speed to terahertz frequencies (10^12 Hz). Using the electric field from intense light pulses, however, could extend …

artificial intelligencePluto moon Hydra imaged as a potato-shaped moon measuring 43 by 33 kilometers

Since its discovery in 2005, Pluto’s moon Hydra has been known only as a fuzzy dot of uncertain shape, size, and reflectivity. Imaging obtained during New Horizons’ historic transit of the Pluto-Charon system and transmitted to Earth early this morning …

bootstrapping nanotechnologyFiber Reinforced plastic that is 20% lighter than aluminum

Efforts to produce lighter vehicles necessarily include engine parts, such as the cylinder casing, which could shed up to 20 percent of its weight if it were made of fiber-reinforced plastic rather than aluminum – without added costs. Such injection-molded …

DNA nanotechnologyIdo Bachelet DNA nanobots summary with a couple of extra videos

In a brief talk, Bachelet said DNA nanobots will soon be tried in a critically ill leukemia patient. The patient, who has been given roughly six months to live, will receive an injection of DNA nanobots designed to interact with …

DNA nanotechnologyDiamond can replace silicon for computer chips for faster, lighter and simpler devices

Diamond can run 5 times hotter than Silicon without degrading in performance and is more easily cooled (with 22 times the heat transfer efficiency of silicon), can tolerate higher voltages before breaking down, and electrons (and electron-holes) can move faster …

bootstrapping nanotechnologyMoon Express tests its MTV-1X flying donut lunar lander

The criteria for winning the grand $20 million Google Lunar XPrize seems fairly straightforward: land on the moon, cross a distance of 500 meters and send back high-definition footage to Earth along the way. The natural solution to the problem, …

DNA nanotechnologyIdo Bachelet announces 2015 human trial of DNA nanobots to fight cancer and soon to repair spinal cords

At the British Friends of Bar-Ilan University’s event in Otto Uomo October 2014 Professor Ido Bachelet announced the beginning of the human treatment with nanomedicine. He indicates DNA nanobots can currently identify cells in humans with 12 different types of …
