DailyDirt: Nifty Nanotechnology

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Materials with nanoscale structures promise to make a lot of things vastly better. The obvious application for smaller and faster computer processors will likely extend Moore's Law for a few more years, so maybe people won't really notice the improvements because everyone is already accustomed to computers getting faster at an insane rate. The noticeable nanotechnology might show up in things that never really existed before. Here are just a few examples of materials that could lead to nanotech cloaking devices or some other cool stuff (if nanotech can actually be produced economically someday). If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
