Chips are down over IP rights

(Victoria University of Technology's Professor Jugdutt) Singh says the local know-how will position Australia well for the next big "little" thing - commercialising nanotechnology in devices smaller than 100 microns.

For example, Singh says, sensors could be embedded in paint or even people to administer drugs into the body, although he concedes people are generally resistant to implants.

Some nano-chips will also have minuscule radio-frequency transmitters to create a matrix of surveillance.
