a dna nano-machine . . .
Found this article about these new dna nanomachines --> Ohio State researchers create DNA ‘Transformers’ While they make the official scientific paper about biomedical applications, there's more than an indication that they think they could make a nanomanufacturing system - "“You’ll be able to put some of these pieces together to be able to make a more-complicated molecular robot,” LaBean said."
There's been plenty of dna nanomanufacturing news I haven't posted. Some MIT researchers reported making better cad/cam software. CAD/CAM kind of predicts and draws up any design you tell it to. Or, you could just draw it up yourself.
