The value of tangibility for ubiquitous computing is in its simplicity-when faced with the question of how to grasp a digital object, why not just pick it up? But this is problematic; digital media is powerful due to its extreme mutability and is therefore resistant to the constraints of static physical form. We present Slurp, a tangible interface for(More)
The determination of protein functions is one of the most challenging problems of the post-genomic era. The sequencing of entire genomes and the possibility to access gene's co-expression patterns has moved the attention from the study of single proteins or small complexes to that of the entire proteome [1]. In this context, the search for reliable methods(More)
DNA nanotechnology exploits the programmable specificity afforded by base-pairing to produce self-assembling macromolecular objects of custom shape. For building megadalton-scale DNA nanostructures, a long 'scaffold' strand can be employed to template the assembly of hundreds of oligonucleotide 'staple' strands into a planar antiparallel array of(More)
This paper describes the performance analysis of an adapter in accordance with standard UPnP DHCompliant (Digital Home Compliant) for a service robot. The DHCompliant adapter has been developed to solve some limitations that UPnP protocol suffers and to develop new DHC concepts. Moreover, it showcases with a particular example how the open protocol DHC is(More)
We have developed a general method for solving a key challenge for nanotechnology: programmable self-assembly of complex, three-dimensional nanostructures [Douglas, Dietz, et al. 2009]. Previously, scaffolded DNA origami has been used to build arbitrary flat shapes 100 nm in diameter and almost twice the mass of a ribosome [Rothemund 2006]. Now we have(More)
