Nanotech: Big things in small packages

Abstract:
Forty-five years ago, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman proposed a future world in which computers might be reduced radically from the giant room-sized machines of that era and in which atoms could be rearranged and ordered one by one according to our wishes.

This future anticipated by Feynman in 1959 is now upon us. Today’s laptop computers provide far more computational power, storage capacity and speed than was ever achieved by the enormous contraptions of yesteryear. And advances in nanotechnology are taking us to the brink of a world in which systems can be designed and developed at the molecular level.
