This article is a stub. It needs to be expanded.

This article defines a novel term (that is hopefully sensibly chosen). The term is introduced to make a concept more concrete and understand its interrelationship with other topics related to atomically precise manufacturing. For details go to the page: Neologism.

Interfacial drives are a form of mechanical macroscopification. They are similar if not derived from infinitesimal bearings and integrate some chemomechanical converters or elecromechanical converters here and there in their structure. They are similar to Artificial motor-muscles but do shearing instead of expanding and contracting and don't change their volume.
