      Dear members,

      Welcome to the 1st weekly digest since we upgaded our software. As you can see there have been many changes to the site. We now have a much slicker interface with some great tools - blogs, groups (why not start your own?). The old Knowledge Base has been superseded by articles that appear on the homepage (much more visible).

      We hope that you like the changes. It's been a lot of hard work and a difficult transition, so bear with us if you encounter some problems - there's a huge list of minor issues we're fixing gradually in the background.

      Please tell us what you think of the changes here. In the meantime, below is a digest of the latest discussion topics...

      Best regards,

      Hot topics
      Research into mechanical arms. Are there any mechanical arms that can move less then the size of an atom (estimated about .152 Van Der Waals.) incrementally and three dimensionally on every axis? If not what is the smallest controlled movement an arm can make thus far?
