"Zero-dimensional" carbon nanotubes sound amazingly futuristic.

"These extremely short nanotubes would be more soluble and would have the same dimensions as many proteins that compose the basic machinery of living cells. That suggests the potential for cell- or protein-level biomedical imaging, protein or nucleic acid vaccination carriers, drug-delivery vehicles, or even components of synthetic cells, the researchers say."
