Researchers develop nanotech HIV-fighting drug delivery system

Developments in nanotechnology aren't all hard drive and bionic-hornet related -- researchers at the University of Missouri have developed a "dual-use" nanotech drug delivery device that they say can be used to target HIV and cancer. The device, which has a total volume of just a cubic inch, fires off supersonic shockwaves to make nearby tissues permeable to the proper drugs. The tech is still three years from being made available to pharmaceutical companies, but we're definitely counting the days until we can treat our colds with nanotech shockwaves.
