|Bistable mechanisms make up a class of mechanisms which have two stable equilibrium states within their range of motion. They are commonly used as switches, closures, or hinges. Bistable mechanisms require no power input to remain stable at each equilibrium state.|
Nanotubes were only discovered in 1991, but already the intense interest in the scientific community has advanced our ability to create and use nanotubes tremendously. Only 2 to 3 years ago, the longest nanotubes that had been made were about 1000 nanometers long (1 micron). Today, scientists are able to grow tubes as long as 200 million nanometers (20 cm). Bushnell notes that there are at least 56 labs around the world working to mass produce these tiny tubes.
"Great strides are being made, so making bulk materials using nanotubes will probably happen," Bushnell says. "What we don't know is how much of this 600 times the strength of steel by weight will be manifest in a bulk material. Still, nanotubes are our best bet."
Researchers have created the highest resolution optical
revealing structures as small as just tens of billionths of a metre across.

|Micro propulsion is a true key element for high performance micro- and nano satellites.Each sphere contains four individual thrusters that is located in one plane, 90 degrees radially apart.|
|Magic Cube — The Sandia-developed "Magic Cube" can blow a fragment-free hole in 1/4-inch steel. It can be used to safely look at a terrorist bomb inside a vehicle or create an opening to see accident victims and send them supplies.|
