Remember Slinky, the coiled metal spring that walks down stairs with just a push, momentum and gravity? Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed their own version of this classicalbeit 10 million times smalleras a novel technology for manipulating and measuring DNA molecules and other nanoscale (billionth of a meter) materials.
