The Nanotechnology Revolution

Abstract:
Nanotechnology promises to change our world in ways that are difficult to predict, or even imagine: Star Trek style replicators that allow you to make almost anything you want… artificial robotic blood cells will turn an Average Joe into a world-class athlete, or allow you to hold your breath under water for an hour at a time… programmable "smart" matter than can take whatever form you desire. Advanced nanotechnology promises all of this plus a lot more.

A distinguished panel of guests, including IEET Managing Director Mike Treder, explain the benefits—and risks—of this powerful technology that could be here sooner than most expect.
