Nanotechnology's everywhere

Abstract:
Kevin Maney: Last week, I stopped by the NanoBusiness 2005 conference just off Wall Street. The overarching theme: Nanotech isn't just a lab experiment anymore. It's spreading fast and in some surprising ways.

For that matter, you'll probably slather nanotech all over your face this summer. It's in sunscreens and sun-blocking lotions. It's in quick-drying paint. It might be in your pants.

Perhaps most dazzling of all, nanotechnology can be used to manufacture diamonds that are all but indistinguishable from mined diamonds a profound development that could eventually cut into traditional diamond sales the way Tylenol pushed aside aspirin.
