Magnetic Super-atoms Discovered

Very fascinating.

I just can't wait for nano tech. The possibilities are mind boggling. Imagine injectable nanobots, that will go in and destroy cancer cells or the AIDS virus or carry out repairs after a serious accident. Real cool that would be.

Interesting. Think this can have applications in temporary memory like RAM, it saves space in Embedded chips. If molecular electronics can replace the present ICs, it will be a serious breakthrough!!
