THE FUTURE IS COMING: The Nanofactory


One area I follow very closely is the advancement of science and technology. A favorite cartoon I used to watch as a kid was the Jetsons. It appears many of the gadgets dreamed about by Hanna and Barbera in the Jetsons may be closer to reality than we think. This animation was released during the past week that demonstrates how manufacturing will occur using nanotechnology. The creation of this piece was directed by a world authority on nanotechnology Eric Drexler. Imagine a desktop nanofactory that could manufacture anything you wanted... from a fork and spoon, to a computer. It could happen in the next 10-15 years.

    whoa! that's what i'm talking about. well, not really because i wouldn't know what to say about it, but i do know that nanotechnology is pretty small but going to be so big. anyway, very cool stuff!

    See if you can recognize any sounds in this old track I made back in the 90's (hint: jetsons)
