Protein nanomachines have many attractive features. Whether we can take advantage of those depends on future technical advancements to reconstitute their functions in vitro in a useful manner. Breakthroughs towards this direction have been made in the field of protein molecular motors. In addition, novel challenges are recently initiated to use cells or organelles with superb motility as micro actuators or carriers, in conjunction of their genetic modifications.
