Couldn't believe it when I saw this but I'm excited. I have imagined something like this (more of a liquid metal kind of thing, like from the terminator movies) but didn't expect it to be around so soon.

Ready for the market in 2008. Do you think they will be easy to use, reusable/long lasting, expensive?

I wonder if Vegas has seen these at any of the shows?

AWESOME!

I hope they make a small container of it available. That'd be nice to do some home repairs on the nuts.


OOOOO and can you imagine the possibilities for homemade gear!

I'm psyched!

I foresee them performing just like brassies. They'll mold so well that they'll become irretrievable.

Polymer science is here, dude. Polymer science has brought us plastics to design joints out of, plastic shunts that degrade after a couple months in the body, and apparently d3o (spelling?). Eventually, they will have designed a way to polymerize bucky balls into a string, and instead of climbing rope you will use something that is much stronger and actually about as thick as a strand of silk.

polymer science also brought us polyamide ropes, but that was just the beginning.

Is this for real? I mean, I've heard about d30, but that doesn't look like what I've seen.

Dang, that could be the best april fools ever if that's what it is. I got the original e-mail and link from Rock and Ice with a short review of the nuts and everything! Well played on their part!

I heard he's going to move to US to continue his research in a reputed University. But he was asked to change his name to the american equivalent: Dr. April Fool

Apparently this Dr. Pazzo is a well-rounded academic.
