Nanotech goes to war

Abstract:
The creation of MIT's Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies poses the reasonable question of whether nanotech has anything in its bag of tricks to improve the lot of the common grunt. The institute's founders and the U.S. Army, which kicked things off with a $50 million grant, clearly believe there is something to the concept of applying the smallest of small technology to the battlefield. But getting there, starting with today's tentative stabs at mining the molecular and atomic world, could turn into a torturous journey.
