Engineering Tiny Machines

Mike Treder: As we've said before, ask 100 people to define nanotechnology and you'll get 11 different answers: 90 people will say "I don't know anything about it", and the other ten will give you varying definitions.

At CRN, we have been using this definition: Nanotechnology is the projected ability to make things from the bottom up, using techniques and tools that are being developed today to place every atom and molecule in a desired place.
