Nice pictures, I like the colours!

Has any thought been given to how you might make these things? Could mechanosynthesis reach in and stick atoms on the inside of the gears, or would they be built in parts and snapped together, or made by traditional chemistry processes? Any ideas at all?

Do the people who design these machines use any rules to guide them as to what atoms can be stuck where and in what order? Or is the process more a combination of papier mache and colouring in?

Do you know what speed the parts are moving in the simulations?

I would like to see machines made with only carbon and hydrogen. Carbon and hydrogen are (currently) the only two types of atoms that we have good reason to believe can be used in mechanical synthesis. Until we have an accurate simulation of other types of atoms being added to a work piece at precise locations with very high reliability I don't think that you can count on being able to use them when you are designing nano-machines.

It appears that at some point it was possible to download and install this (per the poll question) but I don't see any way to do this now - am I missing it?
