Nanotechnology and Waste

Abstract:
Mike Treder: Alex Steffen, in a World Changing article on "The Kind of Future Fabbing Suggests", says:

"Doing fine machine-work by hand is a painstaking job, worthy of master craftsmen. But computers and robotic factories don't really care whether the material they're working is a meter or a micron thick. As a result, it's getting easier and easier to create materials of astonishing purity, manufacture parts of incredible precision, and assemble products to the very finest tolerances. Since greater precision often equals better performance, this means that engines can be made more powerful and less wasteful, consumer products, from furniture to household appliances, can be made with less stuff."
