It’s easy to forget that the boys at Big Blue don’t just do computers – they have their fingers in a whole lot of other pies too, one of which is the development of electron microscopes. They’ve just demonstrated the latest advance in this field, an ‘atomic force microscope’ which doesn’t just produce images of materials at the nanoscale, but can manipulate individual molecules with incredible precision. The future is tiny.

Well yes, they’re also interested in molecular manufacturing. This AFM is a baby step to molecular computing trillions (yes, trillions) of times faster than what we have today.
