If Sabeer Bhatia's vision comes true, 5,000 acres of Himalayan foothills could become India's city of tomorrow. Once built, the city would provide 500,000 people with water, power, transport systems and Internet connectivity.
When a student asked why he picked the name Nano City, Bhatia noted that, just as silicon was the "substrate of the '60s," the future now lies in nanotechnology. "Nanotechnology sits at the confluence of a number of areas of research, not just computing," he said. "It's material science, biotechnology, pharmaceutical research and nanotechnology itself."
