Shrinking Micromachines

Abstract:
Some of the best minds in science believe that in the not-too-distant future, a friendly fog will settle over the planet. Unlike its traffic-snarling, airport-closing twin, this "utility fog" will be downright helpful. It will put roofs over homeless heads, clothes on bare backs and food in empty stomachs. It will have the power to transform the most desolate village into a Garden of Eden, with widescreen TVs and cappuccino.
