Quote-“University of Pittsburgh researchers have synthesized a simple molecule that not only produces perfectly uniform, self-assembled nanotubes but creates what they report as the first "nanocarpet," whereby these nanotubes organize themselves into an expanse of upright clusters that when magnified a million times resemble the fibers of a shag rug. Moreover, unlike other nanotube structures, these tubes display sensitivity to different agents by changing color and can be trained to kill bacteria, such as E. coli, with just a jab to its cell membrane.”


Could this new improvement be an actual introduction to a paint that would defend it self against Bio Weapons and deadly diseases. The tubes that are made turn colors for certain chemicals or agents it comes intact with. Hopefully for further research the improvement could establish a finalized shield against Bio weapons and such. Hopefully these tubes can be able defend by killing the cell or agents it touches or visa-versa
