From the article: "A pair of dye molecules, one affixed to the box's rim and another to its lid, glow red when close together and green when far apart, providing an easy way to detect whether a box is closed or open." Wow.

I suppose it's doing the rounds now. It's a very cool achievement, reminds me of when IBM wrote it's name using individual atoms. The programmable lock is so cool.

That video is very interesting, it clarified me the concept of DNA origami.

It's funny when the smilies were formed, and there were lots of deformed and mutated ones. LOL.

The story is awesome too. It's from the Abstruse Goose webcomic, which I think it's been featured here already. Very funny and geeky : http://abstrusegoose.com/143

Am I the only one for whom Abstruse Goose doesn't work? It's been broken for weeks for me - the site just goes into a redirect loop or something similar.
