Turing code For nanomachines?

from the please-not-in-Java dept.
vik writes "I was attracted by a slashdot article on 8-bit Java VM's implemented using a Turing Machine backend. With Turing Machines being conceptually simple, the design put forward by Bernard Hodson has relevance to nanotechnology in that we'll want to get the simplest possible hardware running the smallest possible software. Probably not in Java, but the principles still hold. If construction command sequences can be compressed in a similar way, assembler control machinery could be greatly simplified."
