Products, Power, and Impact

Abstract:
Mike Treder: Three reasons why advanced nanotechnology will be so transformative -- and quite possibly disruptive - Scaling laws, factories that make factories, and cheap, rapid prototyping.

Combine these three factors and you get what economists call creative destruction. How soon will it occur? Well, that's the problem. Nobody knows. It might be 20 years from now, 15 years, 10 years, or possibly less. What we urgently need is well-funded and wisely managed studies to better understand the technology and its power.
