Nanotech could put a new spin on sports

Abstract:
Sometime in 2005, start-up company NanoDynamics plans to sell a nanotech golf ball that promises to dramatically reduce hooks and slices for even the most frustrated of weekend golfers.

Nanotechnology can make material stronger and lighter than ever — "and sporting goods is all about 'stronger and lighter,' " says Bob Thurman, director of research for Wilson Global Golf. Nanotech will eventually make better-performing yacht racing masts, hockey sticks, vaulting poles, softball bats, golf clubs and tennis rackets. The technology will help make lighter racing bikes and Indy cars.
