Roboblood and Nanotech for the here and now

It's been observed that nanotechnology is the first technology to spawn a backlash before it has even been developed. Prince Charles himself has publicly fretted about the potential dangers of runaway self-replicating nanobots covering the planet in "gray goo." Since people are worrying about dangers of nanotech that wouldn't manifest themselves for decades - if ever - I thought that, for balance, I'd focus on a possible benefit of nanotech that also wouldn't manifest itself for decades - if ever.
