Can you build some nano-fluidic engine using this technology?

Is this an actual physical phenomena or is it just something that has appeared in a computer simulation? That is what it sounds like. It would be a game changer if it were able to be implemented in a simple and inexpensive manner, but that may not happen. Moving from a simulation to reality, (actual hardware), is often the show stopping task. In the interim these chaps have a nice grant to live on while chasing a theoretical "reality".

I haven't seen any of the publications, but I note that in several cases in the above article they said they were able to "do" things, not simulate them. Presumably they were able to make a polariton and observe it. I expect the motion sensing aspect is still theory. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of it.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
