Its not a fine motion controller, but it would still appear
to be a pretty significant chemical synthesis accomplishment
which produces something which really begins to fit with the
ideas behind "molecular nanotechnology".

Scientists build world's first single-molecule car

This is really going to start to deflate those who
claim "it can't be done"!  It will be nice to find
out exactly how many people were involved and for how
long as that will give us parameters to estimate the
people/cost requirements for more complex efforts using
this approach.
