Scientists build nanomachine envisioned 150 yrs ago

Abstract:
Nearly 150 years ago it was no more than a concept by a visionary scientist, but researchers have now created a minuscule motor that could lead to the creation of microscopic nanomachines.

Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell first imagined an atom-size device dubbed Maxwell's Demon in 1867. Scientists at the University of Edinburgh have made it a reality.

"We have a new motor mechanism for a nanomachine," said David Leigh, a professor of chemistry at the University.
