A genuine nanoscale fabrication capability might arrive soon that would transform industrial society, though not in the fashion initially envisioned, according to a study by Chris Phoenix, director of research at the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (New York). Phoenix proposes a desktop nanofabrication system that could build industrial components from the molecular level up under programmable control. The concept blends traditional mass-production techniques with an assembler that would use a combination of chemistry and physical mechanics to assemble objects from individual atoms.
Such fabricators, Phoenix believes, could arrive as soon as 2010 and certainly before 2020.
