Its impact on the future of computers.

what is nanotechnology
What is Nanotechnology?
  • It is the manufacturing of things one atom at a time with the use of small, programmed self-replicating robotic arms, (which are about 3 to 4 atoms wide) .
  • The production of matter would be computerized at an atomic level.
what can nanotechnology do for the future
What can nanotechnology do for the future?
  • Reversing aging, hence immortality
  • Easy and affordable space travel
  • Reversing environmental damage
  • Reintroduction of extinct organisms
  • Faster computers
  • And much more
how do we research nanotechnology
How do we research nanotechnology?
  • It combines the disciplines of:
    • Computer science
    • Chemistry
    • Biology
    • Physics
    • Electronics
nanotechnology research cont d
Nanotechnology Research (cont’d)
  • The goal is to be able to manipulate atoms individually, placing them where we want, on a structure.
  • $100 million has been invested in a 10 year nanotechnology research project in Japan at MITI.
nanotechnology research cont d43
Nanotechnology Research (cont’d)
  • Atomic-level precision is predicted to come into place by 2015.
  • However, it could be many years before we see significant impact.
nanotechnology and computers
Nanotechnology and computers
  • A primitive computer many years ago was the size of a room.
  • Overtime, computers have gotten smaller.
  • With the use of nanotechnology, computers would become very, very small, and billions of times faster.
labor and nanotechnology
Labor and nanotechnology
  • A lot of the labor market will consist of Systems programmers.
  • Systems programmers would have to write the software for microscopic computers to follow.
  • Industrial-manufacturing processes will become obsolete.
  • Consumer goods will be produced inexpensively, but durable.
microscopic computers would be able to
Microscopic computers would be able to:
  • Patrol our bodies as artificial immune systems
  • Repair cells
  • Manipulate DNA

--Hence reversing the aging process.

  • No Waste...No By-Products...No Slag...Nothing to Dump, Spew or Pollute
  • “Servants of Humanity" will be called upon to resurface existing roads with a coating of

high-efficiency solar cells.

  • Only a small portion of existing road surface would be needed for energy collection.
how to get involved
How to get involved….
  • Rice University in Houston, Texas, has a Nanotechnology Task Force.
  • There is no specialized degree for nanotechnology, but the best place to go is Rice University, and apply for one of the science programs.
how we make it happen
How we make it happen?
  • Currently, there are many government projects.
  • But we need more funding to support these projects.
  • Currently the most expensively funded project in the world is the one in Japan, for $100 million, (as mentioned earlier).
  • Not enough people know about it.
