In the movie, ‘I, Robot’, trillions of tiny invisible nanobots come to the rescue, injected into the supercomputer brain VIKI to save the world from imminent robot takeover.
In today’s world, scientists hope nanotechnology will be the technological saviour of the century, making things smaller, faster, stronger, cheaper and more powerful than ever before. There are plans for moving stairways to the skies, new bone implants which regrow in the body and a nano fountain of youth.
It’s technology with amazing possibilities and some disturbing risks.
Hello, Amanda Armstrong here with today’s Background Briefing, looking at the impact of the frontier science of nanotechnology, science and engineering at the scale of atoms and molecules, around one-billionth of a metre.
(Ed.'s note: well worth reading. Towards the end of the report, there is a quote attributed to Paul Hodges, beginning "Well I love such naiveté" - it actually was made by Pat Mooney of ETC.)
