DNA Nanomotors: The Future of Nanotechnology in Medicine and Manufacturing?

Hi Reddit Community! Just stumbled upon some mind-blowing nanotech news. Researchers have successfully developed the first-ever nanoscale electromotor, and it's crafted using DNA. This tiny marvel, powered by the flow in a nanopore, could be a game-changer. Think about a DNA turbine, spinning at speeds of a billion revolutions per minute!

How do you think this innovation could transform industries? Could we see its application in building nano-factories for pharmaceuticals or in deploying nano-medical probes within our bodies for early disease detection? Also, how close are we to a future where such nanodevices navigate our bloodstream for health monitoring, echoing sci-fi fantasies? Keen to hear your thoughts on the implications and possibilities of this groundbreaking development in nanotechnology!

"How Do Solar Panels Survive in Space?"

I just read about Caltech's solar power experiment in space (way above the Arctic ice, no less!).They tested different types of solar cells to see which can handle the harsh space environment. So, I'm wondering, what makes these space solar panels so tough? And how different are they from the ones on our rooftops? Any space tech gurus here to enlighten us?

How Did Scientists Achieve a 30-Fold Increase in Quantum Coherence Duration with a 'Magic Trap'?

Rice University and Durham University researchers have made a quantum leap in prolonging quantum coherence in ultracold molecules. By using a "magic trap" and a specific wavelength of light, they've extended coherence time to 1.5 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 1/20th of a second. This method, detailed in Nature Physics, is inspired by Temple University's theoretical work and signifies a major advance in quantum physics.

How do you think this breakthrough will shape the future of quantum technology? What could be the potential impacts of this extended coherence on our understanding of quantum systems?

My new urologist said the interstim sacral neuromodulation device is a treatment option for me!

Which means I could be a cyborg soon.

Anybody selling a Sensibridge North Paw?

I'm looking for a Sensibridge North Paw kit. I've seen online that they don't ship them anymore, so I'm searching for a second hand, kit or already assembled. I live in Europe. Thank you

BUILDING the FUTURE BUDDHA: The Zen of AI, Genes, Saving the World, and Travel to the Stars

I hope that I might introduce, just released for the New Year, my new book of hope for the future and what Zen Buddhists might have to add to the discussion ...

Learning from Teachings of 50, 500 or 2500 years ago, alive here in this timeless present, let us begin to envision Buddhism, Zen and our world 50, 500, 2500 and more years from now ...

BUILDING the FUTURE BUDDHA: The Zen of AI, Genes, Saving the World, and Travel to the Stars

by Jundo Cohen

with John Cobb M.D.

NOW AVAILABLE ...

https://futurebuddhabook.com/

~~~

Zen and Buddhist insights, timeless wisdom gathered over centuries, can help guide us in our lives today and in the prudent use of new technologies, nurturing a calm and serene world, prosperous yet existing in harmony with nature, a healthy, contented and good society for the centuries to come.

Let Zen inspire us to sometimes step back from our machines and digital devices, returning to the simple and old-fashioned ways, the slow ways, because they are beautiful ways. In the rush for improvement, let us learn to sit still sometimes and rest from our goals, drop the quest for constant upgrades and efficiency, restrain the endless hunger for progress, and turn off the flashing lights and ceaseless noise.

At the same time, if employed well, technology and medicine can help us bring true peace, an end to most wars and violence committed in anger, cures for diseases, ecological balance, greater love and empathy among people and for all beings, increased charity, remedies for poverty and homelessness, and the attainment of other goals for good in the world as long dreamed of by Buddhists and caring people of many religions and philosophies.

Let us cultivate balance, moderation in desire, sustainable production, the wise use of resources, equilibrium and homeostasis in consumption, a healthy relationship with this planet which is our home.

Let us know contentment with “just what is” and acceptance of the present state of affairs, even as we work diligently for what is truly needed, even as we do not accept and meet head-on the challenges of the many problems in this world we must address; building a beautiful world, yet quitting the quest for constant improvements and efficiency, restraining the endless hunger for achievements, rejecting some technologies altogether because of their harmful effects, working to make our planet better, yet nonetheless satisfied with enough and not more … for enough is simply enough.

Let us employ technology and medicine fairly, so that no one is left hungry, homeless, without access to reasonable opportunity, education or medical care, friendship, respect and love, honoring our diversity.

Let us learn from the traditional teachings of the Buddhas and Zen Ancestors, let us practice Wisdom and Compassion in our ancient Zen ways, while open to new means and methods, helpful science, technology and medicine which might complement and fulfill the old teachings and ways. AI and robotics, bio-engineering and physical enhancements, genetics and nano-implants, virtual reality and new media, medical miracles and manufacturing marvels, extended lifespans and expanded minds ... Zen will be practiced, programmed, bred and wired in; enlightenment will move as chemistry and light across neural fibers and optical fibers.
