Maxwell's Demon

Nano machine of the future captures great scientist’s bold vision from

An idea conceived by one of the world's greatest scientists nearly 150 years ago has finally been realised with a tiny machine that could eventually lead to lasers moving objects remotely.


This is actually a rather significant advance scientifically, although it's technological implications may take a while to become evident. What matters here is that this result is an existence proof that a new technological paradigm that many have forecasted (but which many have also doubted) will actually be possible in practice. It's hard to argue against reproducible results.
