Hacking Matter: Levitating Chairs, Quantum Mirages, and the Infinite Weirdness of Programmable Atoms


Programmable topic may not be the following technological revolution, nor perhaps even the single after that. yet it truly is coming, and while it does, it's going to switch our lives up to any invention ever has. think having the ability to application topic itself-to swap it, with the press of a cursor, from not easy to delicate, from paper to stone, from fluorescent to super-reflective to invisible. Supported by means of organisations starting from Levi Strauss and IBM to the safety division, solid-state physicists in popular laboratories are operating to make it a truth. during this impressive research, Wil McCarthy visits the laboratories and talks with the researchers who're constructing this impressive expertise, describes how they're studying to regulate it, and tells us the place all this may lead. the chances are actually astonishing.
