it does seem like there is the possibility that life may exist in forms not yet discovered by humans.....

whats to say they are wrong. Most scientist know at the atomic level even organic molecules act like machines... so who is to say you cant make a machine act like life??.
The only problem i see with this is that the bonds within metal are very different then the covalent bonds in carbon based organisms...
i would say that the ease of electron transfer within metallic bonds would make a metal based organism evolve very fast if it exsits

This is pretty cool but way far from what the title claims. Its really just a metalic membrane, no DNA or organelles. Make that and ill be impressed.

Ok, I was being lazy, by DNA I meant a coding mechanism to guide the cells activity. For life to be viable, it needs to be able take potential energy/energy from the environment and use it or store it. Or like a virus, have a host do it. If it does not take from its environment then how can it replicate. These are basically metalic bubbles that have a semi-permiable membrane.

read article again

The process is still rudimentary, but by linking some oxide molecules to light sensitive dyes, the team has constructed a membrane that splits water into hydrogen ions, electrons and oxygen when illuminated — which is how photosynthesis begins in real cells.
