Our “core gameplay loop” revolves around multi-year programs run by program managers with wide-ranging authority to coordinate several projects towards a single vision.

Programs aim to unlock technologies that are potentially big if true. However, these technologies are very much still research, not products.

The goal of a program is to make a technologies sufficiently unspeculative to the point where it can continue in other institutions – whether that’s as a startup, a government research program, or part of a larger company. Our job is to turn the impossible into the inevitable.

Current Programs

Nanomodular Electronics

Led By: Michael Filler

Nanomodular electronics is creating a new process for manufacturing microelectronics that are customizable down to the transistor, use a plethora of materials, and can be made on-demand without etching silicon or requiring a massive, expensive facility. By creating tiny, modular components separately from laying them down and wiring them together, we could make custom microelectronics as easily as printing this document.

Molecular Additive Manufacturing

Led By: Chris Wintersinger

Molecular additive manufacturing is creating heterogeneous materials whose structures can be specified down to nanoscale building blocks, potentially enabling us to engineer structures we depend on biology for today. By templating a precise pattern of covalently bonded proteins, polymers, and inorganic molecules, we could create powerful catalysts, membranes to easily filter water, and take the first steps on the path towards atomically precise manufacturing.
