    it was a charity game meant to break the record. i have heard about it previously, and if memory serves me correctly, each team scored over 100 goals.

    but, unfortunately, the guy never finished his 6 foot cathedral made of bullets……..when asked why, he said:

    Re the motor: What’s the HP rating, and how do you attach a pulley or gear to ti?

    Isn’t an atom of hydrogen, with an electron going around a proton, the smallest electrical motor?

    Maybe naturally but this one is human made out of several atoms into a molecular motor.
    Extruk they have built small cams and other parts. But first you build the mother then work out the other aspects of it.


    I wish they had links to these items, I’d like to see a clear photo from several angles of this construction.

    A 60,000 times smaller……………
    I’m no English major, but that makes no sense. It’s 1/60,000th the width.

    “The excitement is in the demonstration that you can provide electricity to a single molecule and get it to do something that’s not just random,” says team leader Charles Sykes, an associate professor of chemistry in the School of Arts and Sciences.

    Single-molecule motors are not new, but until now they’ve been driven by either chemicals or light. A molecular motor powered by electricity has significant advantages over those other technologies, says Sykes.

    Remember when IBM lined up atoms to form their initials? Real too.
