+ - Transistors made of a Single Molecule

Submitted by whitehatlurker
whitehatlurker (867714) writes "Science Daily reports that a group of physicists from Arizona have developed a method of buidling a transistor using a single molecule (on the scale of one nanometer).

Unfortunately, these won't be available off the shelf for a while:
Even if it were possible to build an ultra-advanced laptop computer with molecule-sized transistors using current transistor technology, it would take a city's worth of electricity to run the laptop, and the thing would get so hot it would probably vaporize.
