sea-mouse nanowires

THE shimmering sea mouse, Aphrodita aculeata, may hold a key to creating nanoscale electronics, making it possible to produce nanowires 100 times longer than existing methods allow – and for a fraction of the price. The sea mouse is a marine worm the length of your thumb and is native to the North Atlantic and […]

Produced with a “bottom-up” self-assembly technique, the new structure takes advantage of nanotechnology to fine-tune its materials properties, addressing the shortcomings of earlier silicon-based battery anodes. The simple, low-cost fabrication technique was designed to be easily scaled up and compatible with existing battery manufacturing. Details of the new self-assembly approach were published online in the […]

Powering Nanobots

Cornell University A team of Cornell University scientists has shown in initial experiments that it might be possible to borrow sperm’s strategy for energy production and modify it to power nanodevices that could move through the human body, dispensing drugs, monitoring enzymes or performing other chores. Borrowing strategy from sperm In a mouse sperm, the […]

Archimorph

(…excerpt from the in progress ‘architectural’ graphic novel archimorph) Archimorph The Near Future It is July in Nebraska, and the humid air looms over Jim as he removes the handkerchief from his back pocket and wipes the sweat from his brow. Yet again, it has been another day of relaxation and self-reflection, of daydreaming under […]

.:IaaC:. Final Submittal

The presentation boards have been submitted to the 2007 IaaC Self-Fab Home Competition. The presentation boards, new graphs, images, and a powerpoint shall be posted at a later date. The site will now switch gears focusing work towards the genetic evolution script of these structures, which is ongoing and will continue to be researched and […]

Proposal:: Capillary System Update

-Image of capillary in Human lung. It has been discussed that our structure might grow with an L-System script while simultaneously growing with the environmental data, rather than the structure growing and then environmental data optimizing the structure. This would now happen all in one process–in one script. It is now being proposed that our […]

Detail Images:

The images are details which will be presented on either the first or second board. These will be the blown up details of certain areas of the carbon nanobot. Nanoconnectors are linked at the ends of the nanotubes and the processor linked to the inner shell of the carbon nanobot body. Here are the detail […]
