Will personal nanofactories ever be built?
Chris Phoenix: From a comment yesterday: "We will see nanotech-like things happening, but not the build-anything just-wish-for-it nanofactory. We'll have new kinds of materials, .... But the pure build-from-the-atom-up nanofactory will never exist. It's too specific a vision, and those kinds of visions never come true."
