It is not possible to adapt FoldIt for the other domains as the research on superconductors at room temperature?

This is a very interesting

This is a very interesting question (though not a practical one for the foldit developers)

An approach like that of foldit would be very useful in other domains that involve N-P complete packing problems.

For example, in VLSI design, a layout system that included features like wiggle, shake, and pull might be very fruitful at both the library cell level and at the block synthesis level.
