One especially useful component of a microscopic machine would be a motor. Researchers from the Chung-Ang University in Korea have worked out how a nanoscale gas turbine made from nanotubes would work.
The researchers studied the friction between the outer nanotube surface and gas flowing past it with the idea that this friction could be used to provide engine torque, or the force required to turn a shaft.
