Molecular self-assembly creates biped

Remember my two experiments in human bottom-up self-assembly? (See here, here, here, here, here and here.)

The first one is 2 years old now, but is so tall he is often mistaken for a 4-year-old. And the youngest one is 1, also a giant. But this specimen has recently evolved into a biped. Excellent. Excellent. Once he is old enough to develop his own musical tastes, I hope he retains his love for Johnny Cash. Click above to see the subject "Walk the Line."

I'm confused. I've read on your blog that you have two older daughers. Wouldn't that make these two boys your third and fourth, not your first and second?

Yes, I have four kids, including two girls, ages 12 and 15. But I never claimed the girls' births were the result of my evil plot to create soft, self-assembling, conscious nanosystems ... or, did I? My oldest daughter was born in 1991, just a year before Eric Drexler released Nanosystems.
