Molecular engineering. Computer model of a constructed molecular device, an example of possible future nanotechnology. This device is a differential gear. Each sphere represents an individual atom. It is thought that such devices could be based on fullerene chemistry. Fullerenes are a form of carbon where the carbon atoms form spheres (buckyballs) and tubes (carbon nanotubes). Nanotechnology involves the construction of devices at the molecular level.
