We can make microorganisms create proteins by placing their genetic code in a recombinant DNA molecule (typically a plasmid) and induce the bacteria to translate that protein. Some proteins can of course can be considered nano machines, such as enzymes and chaperones. But I'm not sure if we can coax the microorganism to make something inorganic. Maybe somebody else does??
