Nano World: Edible nanotech on the horizon

Abstract:
Scientists are creating edible capsules only nanometers in size to enhance food or medicine. "We're creating nanoparticles that can assemble themselves and made of materials already found in foods. We're not doing any exotic chemistry," physicist Anthony Dinsmore (at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst) said of his group's work.

If the prospect of edible nanotech sounds frightening, "it is not about carving little robots for use in food," physicist Dinsmore said.
