Bottom-up Design Technology

Abstract:
In this month's CRN science essay, Chris Phoenix writes: At first encounter, the idea of designing products with 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms, each in an engineered position, and each one placed without error, may seem ridiculous. But the goal is not as implausible as it sounds. Today's personal computers do that number of transistor operations every few weeks. The operations are done without error, and each one was engineered though not directly.
