Peres says Israel's nanotech will 'change the world'

Abstract:
In a videotaped message to the NanoIsrael conference at Jerusalem's Inbal Hotel, Peres said he "started to talk about nanotechnology a few years ago. I believe I was the first to promote it here. I became a laughingstock because people said it was not serious. Now the potential is clear. I am glad the money we were able to collect has been divided among research institutes and universities."

Peres, who is due to return early to attend Tuesday's Knesset presentation of the new government, declared that nanotechnology "offers great promise to all humankind. Nothing is new in nano; what is new is that we have discovered it... All things existed before, but we weren't able to see it."

Dan Vilenski of the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) compared the potential of nano today with that of semiconductors after World War II. "Then, people said semiconductors would never contribute to mankind, but now it is a trillion-dollar industry."
