The Futurist: Hands-On With The Neatest New Nanotech

Abstract:
As Ottilia Saxl, founder of the Institute of Nanotechnology here put it, "I call nanotechnology science faction — like science fiction, but factual."

This week we're taking a look at the next wave of nanotech research that should change how we do just about everything.

From our firsthand look at about a dozen Scottish nanotech facilities, I've cherry picked a few items that the Futurist believes hold the most promise for changing the world. And people—this stuff is crazy. Some of these things are ripped straight from comic books and old sci-fi movies. And we're not just talking about flesh-eating nanobots (an idea none of the on-site experts seemed too interested in discussing), we're talking spray-on skin and cures for cancer.
