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.
