A team of New York University researchers have built a machine from the DNA, the genetic material of all living organisms. Constructed from synthetic DNA molecules, the device has two rigid arms that can be rotated between fixed positions. The researchers say that the construction of this device is a first step towards the development of nano-robots that might some day construct individual molecules in molecular-scale factories.
