Cool Nanorobot Technology: What to Expect from Science


The development of nanorobots is something that has been on spot most recently – e.g. Check here or there and there. A letter has been released in answer to US Navy interests on molecular machines, describing the developed technology as an open resource. The letter also provides an overview on ethics and legal aspects regarding new and emerging technologies, serving as a guidance to small companies, engineers and the scientist community. The content of the letter is available here, while the description of the TTCP workshop to happen in August 2010, is available there.

Things are getting smaller. As transistor technology progress both speed and small size tech come out.

Nokia has released linux-based phone (meamo).

I think it's not only nanotechnology popular but also "micro techonolgy" everyone can play with.

Look, don't make this into a blog, don't put links like that, I mean describe the links, don't just put here and here, and over here and here and here and here and here, and there and here and there.

But, yes, nanobots will soon be inside you, and they will help relieve you of your lack of trust.

@adrianocavalcanti: The blog format has its place. Have a look at the right of the LQ screen under MY LQ: My Blog. Start your own today if you feel like it!

Cool new materials, IC Gates, integration

Hi Yooy...

You are right! The great on it is that prices is going down, and the performance of electronics just keep moving up and up.

Yep... I like Nokia, very good brand indeed. I myself use a N5800 -- that is amazing what you can code and implement with it, integration, telemetric hardware manipulation, etc

Some new materials are even helping in such process of making things shift from micro to nano, allowing IC-gates with extreme lower heat production and higher performance.

According to PCWorld, developers are already experimenting with transistors composed of single atoms. This proves the possibility of nanotechnology in the general world, including the use of 1024-core CPUs, which certainly are possible with this size of a transistor. Say goodbye to those single-core clunkers... This is the future: an entire supercomputer hive on one chip!

1 molecule transistor? That would sure burn out easy.

What to expect of nanotechnology? Disaster, probably. Think Bhopal, Chernobyl ...

M$ is also pushing for global software patents.

However, you should know that science can be used for good too, it's just that the masters of power are not good.
