The fantastic use of atoms, one at a time

Abstract:
Man-made muscles that contract like biological ones but that are 100 times stronger, that are so powerful, they can inject drugs without a needle. An external skeleton that conforms to the skin and kicks in when a weak knee or ankle kicks out. Clothing made of cooling materials that amount to a personal air conditioning system.
The vibrator in a cell phone. .... they're all built on the new nanotechnology that is using microscopic inventions to interact with the human body, to transmit information in and out, to give it strength or comfort.
