Nanotechnology is the study and application of extremely small things. This technology offers ways to create smaller, cheaper, lighter and faster devices that can do more and cleverer things. The most important feature is that this will use less raw materials and consume less energy.
The purpose of this Nanobots Lens is to spoon-feed you -- little by little a short introduction to nanotechnology as well as ease some possible anxieties about new technology. Especially some technology that is going to have a tremendous and dramatic effect on the future path of humans. Now some of the possible benefits of Nano technology that you didn't know about, will absolutely BLOW YOUR MIND as you'll see!
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology works with materials, devices, and other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. Quantum mechanical effects are important in this quantum-realm scale. With a variety of potential applications, nanotechnology is a key technology for the future and governments have invested billions of dollars in its research. Through its National Nanotechnology Initiative, the USA has invested 3.7 billion dollars. The European Union has invested 1.2 billion and Japan 750 million dollars.Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale.
