Decades ago , biologists found molecules that do complex things ; they termed
them “ molecular machines . ” Physicist Richard Feynman was a visionary of
miniaturization who pointed toward something like molecular nanotechnology :
A huge technology base for molecular construction already exists . Tools
originally developed by biochemists and biotechnologists to deal with molecular
machines found in nature can be redirected to make new molecular machines .
THE BODY AS WORKYARD Molecular machines do the daily work of the body .
When we chew and swallow , muscles drive our motions . Muscle fibers contain
bundles of molecular fibers that shorten by sliding past one another .
