Mike's Microfluidics

My friend Mike Pollack is working on some hella cool laboratory-on-a-chip technology. The chip is basically a grid of electrodes, like a large chess board. Drops of fluid can be placed on the chip on different 'squares' and can be made to hop around the 'board' by energizing the different electrodes programmatically. Check out his web site, the videos rock.
