Nanovision: Engineering the Future

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is often portrayed in fiction as destructive, but public perceptions are more positive.

Nanotechnology, we are often told, will change every aspect of our lives. It is easy to hype such claims because of the long timescales for approving a new technology for commercialization. The science itself can sound like science fiction at times, and fears about how nanotechnology will be realized in the future crop up in works of fiction. In Nanovision, historian of science Colin Milburn proposes that such speculation is an integral part of nanotechnology.
