BuzzSkyline writes "Researchers at Johns Hopkins University are playing with Lego blocks to discover how arrays of nanoscopic obstacles could sort cells and other tiny particles by size.

An academic paper describing the Lego research recently appeared in the journal Physical Review Letters (subscription required)."
