Biology via design, and print via 3-D
Another nascent development expected to flourish in coming decades is a three-dimensional printer that would use nanotechnology to make physical objects by dispersing molecules according to programmed patterns, much as a conventional printer sprays ink to form words and images on a page.
"You put in a formula and design for something, and the printer will etch, layer by layer, the actual three-dimensional object," said Marina Gorbis, executive director of the Institute of the Future.
