Very amazing technology.  Kudos to the developers who had the imagination and creativity to dream up this idea.  Look forward to following further developments in this area and seeing what kind of self-assembling structures will be demonstrated next.

Thanks, etmax--that's a creative and interesting picture of what might be possible by combining several of these wild & crazy technologies.

We've used biomimicry for tools since the beginning of time, but this seems like a significant step forward to me. This seems like one of those head-turning technologies.

This ties in so beautifully with the video I was watching where they were using 3D printing to print tissue assemblies. Coated micro particles could be used print specific parts of an organ in 3D and the right adhesive in the right place would ensure it stayed there.

Isn't this incredible, Rob? I think what amazes me isn't the engineered DNA part--that's been going on for some time now--but applying its behavior and abilities to this kind of design and construction problem set. This is biomimicry at its most basic.

This technology is so out-there, I checked the date quickly to see if it were April 1. This is the kind of story that makes you do a double take. Amazing.
