Dont get me wrong, this IS impressive. But I just think that I would like to see the same control method applied to an actual problem , rather than used in a purely artistic manner, cute and inspiring as it was to behold.

For example, I would love to know if the people who made this animation could come up with a way of controlling vast numbers of atoms simultaneously, and remotely (without the requirement for a solid metal needle), thus making possible all manner of interesting self constructing objects.

I think moving individual atoms around is (or was) an actual problem.

God did that when he invented HANDS.

What they want to do is build chips and nanobots from the ground up.

Watch this for info on how they want to end Moore's Law.
