Making miniature machines

Noy Bassik draws inspiration from origami to engineer miniature tools that he envisages as the surgeons of the future. Hamilton Smith is also in the business of making things. Working with Craig Venter, Smith recently created a bacterial cell controlled by a synthetic genome. As Hamilton and Noy talked at the LIndau Nobel meeting this year, they offered insights into the overlapping worlds of biology and engineering.
