Longtime readers know that we at Foresight would prefer that our members, and Nanodot readers in general, actually live long enough to experience the benefits of molecular nanotechnology personally. In [...]
The word "planet" means wanderer. The ancients, with their lives lived largely outdoors and without artificial lighting, were much more intimately acquainted with the heavens than are we moderns, unless [...]
Last week at AGI-09, I chaired a one-day workshop on the future of AGI. ("AGI" means Artificial General Intelligence, which is essentially what the term "AI" meant before 1980: the [...]
A method of depositing dense arrays of highly aligned carbon nanotubes on either rigid or flexible substrates promises transparent nanotech transistors for a variety of electronic applications.
How well prepared is the FDA to regulate nanotech products? Perhaps not very well, at least in the area of dietary supplements.
It is not clear that there is any real danger from the nanotech products currently in use, but neither is there convincing proof that all are safe.
A nanotech technique that can coat any number of common fabrics with a layer of silicone nanofilaments appears ready to produce durable, completely waterproof clothing.
