MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I saw this on the news the other day too. As markhawkman said, it works on the microscopic level. But it's a good start. It may take decades to develop so it'll be capable of pulling larger solid objects but it is a very interesting start. And yea, very cool!
