In Search of the Sixth Sense

Abstract:
Ray Kurzweil: With nanotechnology we’ll be turning information into a wide range of products -- including food -- with very inexpensive materials.

FC: When will people choose to stop aging?

Kurzweil: The killer app for nanotechnology is nanobots. Some will be in the environment, cleaning up, providing energy. Some will be involved in automated manufacturing. Some will be in our bodies, keeping us healthy from the inside. Destroying pathogens, getting rid of toxins, killing cancer cells. It will be routine.

FC: Nanofood?

Kurzweil: Making sure our bloodstream has all the nutrients it needs regardless of what we eat. We’ll ultimately disconnect the sensual and social pleasures of eating from the biochemical task of keeping an optimum set of nutrients in our bloodstream.
