    All this nano stuff is making me ill…

    It’s like the wave of Web 2.0! stuff before the tech sector/economy exploded….

    I can appreciate what they are doing and all the research that goes into trying to work in a nano scale environment, but…has anything useful been at least designed yet? Oh I know there are about 5 billion things that nano could make or make better…it’s like a 21st century BASF. But I want some hard built devices using nano-tech. Then I’ll shut up and be happy.

    These panels are 500 microns so I dont think this qualifies as “Nano-Origami”.

    A more appropriate example is the nanobox (100 nm a side) created at Johns Hopkins recently. You can read the original article in Nanoletters or a press report in New Scientist

    That could give me a wicked paper cut.

    What is this, a pop-up book for baby nanobots ?

    Wow. What the hell is it?

    So that means we can finally fold something more than seven times? U-hey!

    that’s not nano! that μ symbol indicates micro. that’s micro-origami.

    yours in nano-pedantry,

    There is NO WAY I’ll ever get my pudgy little fingers to do that.

    Nano? That image is a few millimeters across!

    I’m just waiting for the nano paper crane. Someone’s already done a penny-sized one!

    True, but the picture was taken with a SEM so it has to be NANO!

    You can’t cut the paper in Origami …. just sayin’

    The Future will be nanoscale. Technology will disappear. It is going to be wonderful.

    Either that or it will destroy us all. It will be fun to watch, regardless.

    reminds me of Eric Winfree and Paul Rothemund’s
    DNA origami
