Experimental results: molecular machines that might compute, heal

At Cosmic Log Alan Boyle has posted news accompanied by brief video of a molecular structure able to act like a computer.

The key result from the experiments is that parallel processing - an exponential improvement over linear, sequential processing - might thus be carried out at the molecular level, enabling powerful molecular computation as well the construction of machines that might target human autoimmune disorders such as Crohn's Disease, for example.
