Titilating news, space elevators and molecular elevators are in our future. Definitely molecular elevators since the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to three chemists, and J. Fraser Stoddart was the one who developed the molecular creation of a minuscule elevator. Maybe at some point there will be medical uses that require a molecular elevator to move through the body for some slow reacting drug. I have no idea really, but it sounds amazingly futuristic.

Imagine organic computers made of molecules. Moleculartechnology...would everything be liquified? I'm trying to remember all those inorganic/organic chemistry and toxicology classes I took, but it's foggy. Could a super minuscule molecule....I don't think my imagination can stretch that far yet.
Oh wow, then imagine we all had the ability to see more colors like the daughters of colorblind dad's who may carry 4 cones vs. 3 cones. Super vision ability. (Discover Magazine LINK) ; NY Mag LINK)
I am trying to think out of the box as I read these scientific discoveries. What are the future applications? What would a molecular elevator even look like? What new colors of paint could be made? I wonder if this news is inspiring Science/Speculative Fiction writers? Wow.
