Nanotech exhibit opens at IEEE Virtual Museum

The IEEE Virtual Museum, targeted at the general public, has opened its nanotech exhibit. An excerpt:

“Even with these real-world applications, the current uses of nanotechnology (other than nano-size particles of various materials) remain very limited…However, researchers are rapidly making progress toward what some think of as true nanotechnologies—self-assembling, molecule size machines to perform all sorts of tasks (including manufacturing the nano-size materials made by other methods today).”

Sadly, the first illlustration is of a MEMS device. Also distressing to me as an IEEE member is the phrase “Nanotechnology is a science…”

My own favorite nanotech museum is a set of moving molecular machine designs at Nanorex. Click on a design to see it move. —Christine
