The Unknown Future Of Nanotechnology
from the nth-wonder-of-the-world? dept
Anyone who follows nanotechnology has heard the arguments between Drexler and Smalley debating over nanotechnology and how it might revolutionize the world. The next topic: when will nanotechnology turn a profit or is it the next unfulfilled technological promise? Personally, I think nanotechnology will follow the history of advanced chemistry. Just like “plastics” were the future of the 60’s and are ubiquitous today, nanotechnology will slowly be incorporated into everyday items and surround us in the next 50 years. Will there be a specific “a-ha” moment for your average person? Probably not.
