After walking over to the pipe, you can see that it is nearly transparent. Inside is a
seething chaos of small molecules: the wall of the pipe is the boundary between
loose molecules and controlled ones, but the loose molecules are well ...
The Silicon Valley Faire simulation gives the right idea: Systems can be built with
no loose molecules, making nanomechanical design much easier. If no
molecules are loose inside a machine, then loose molecules can't cause
problems there ...
Molecular manufacturing can be termed "positional chemistry" or "positional
synthesis," and will give chemists the ability to put molecules where they want
them in three-dimensional space. Rather than trying to design puzzle pieces that
