Phlesch Bubble Awarded the IMM Computational Nanotechnology Prize
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. October 17th, 2002
Phlesch Bubble has been awarded the IMM Computational Nanotechnology
Prize (Simulation category) for their animation of a working respirocyte
(a hypothetical artificial red blood cell).
David Forrest, President of the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing,
commented about the animation:
"The judges were very impressed with the quality of (the) work, the level
of detail, and the fidelity to the physics of fluid motion in the
bloodstream and the biological environment of the respirocyte. The
operation of the respirocyte was communicated with clarity, attention to
detail, scientific accuracy, and high visual impact."
