Scientists in Texas are reporting the development of a “nanodragster” that may speed the course toward development of a new generation of futuristic molecular machines. The vehicle – only 1/50,000th the width of a human hair – resembles a hot-rod in shape and can outperform previous nano-sized vehicles. Their report is in ACS‘ Organic Letters, a bi-weekly journal.

James Tour, Kevin Kelly and colleagues note that the ability to control the motion of small molecules is essential for building much-anticipated molecular machines.
