Yissar's curator insight, February 25, 10:46 AM

Article introduction: "Think parents should be able to select their children’s talents and personalities? Or want to run and hide in the woods at the thought of it? Whatever your opinion, it is precisely the kind of question that Julian Savulescu wants you to take seriously. Professor of practical ethics at the University of Oxford, Savulescu thinks deeply about the ethics of the biological enhancement of the human race. In his view, not only should you stop fearing such changes, you should consider them for yourself. In fact, he argues, you may even have an ethical responsibility to genetically modify your children."

Kurzweil-influenced futurism is sometimes dismissed as naive techno-optimism, but Ray Kurzweil himself is no Pollyanna. It was Kurzweil who inspired Bill Joy

Nanomotors that are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells | KurzweilAI

Nanomotors that are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells | KurzweilAI | The Long Poiesis | Scoop.it

Penn State University chemists and engineers have, for the first time, placed tiny synthetic motors inside live human cells in a lab, propelled them with ultrasonic waves, and steered them magnetically.

The Penn State nanomotors are the closest so far to a “Fantastic Voyage” concept (without the miniature people).

The nanomotors, which are rocket-shaped gold rods ~300 nanometers in diameter and ~3 microns long, move around inside the cells, spinning and battering against the cell membrane.

The nanomotors are activated by resonant ultrasound operating at ~4 MHz, and show axial propulsion as well as spinning.

Miro Svetlik's curator insight, November 17, 2013 1:01 AM

Idea of Smart Dust heavily surpasses the concept of Internet of Things. It is still quite unbelievable that this is a technology from 90-ties. Big clouds of motes could soon be flying near us. Let's hope they will be used for good purposes..
