The Foresight Nanotech Institute have published glowing praise for the aspirations of PuramatrixTM founder, Prof. Shuguang Zhang. They approvingly quote Zhang from an eJournal article:

For example, aging and damaged tissues can be replaced with the scaffolds that stimulate cells to repair body parts or to rejuvenate the skin. We also might be able to swim and dive like dolphins or to climb mountains with a nanoscaffold lung device that can carry an extra supply of oxygen. It is not impossible to anticipate painting cars and houses with photosynthesis molecular machines that can harness the unlimited solar energy for all populations on every corner of the planet, not just for the wealthy few…[source]

The Puramatrix company website has an impressive publications list. The company is basing its business on nano-scaffolding techniques that can be used to facilitate the construction of any number of other structures and mechanisms.
