For those of you with an interest in the longer-term, more visionary projections for nanotech and the human body, Gina Miller brings to our attention a new collaboration between herself and Robert Freitas, a 2007 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology finalist. From Gina, Foresight Senior Associate (you can be one too):
Some of you may recall that in late 2005 I completed my collaboration with Robert A. Freitas Jr. on the Dermal Display animation, a concept he published in his book Nanomedicine.
Freitas gave a presentation at the 6th Alcor conference on the topic of Nanomedicine and Medical Nanorobotics which featured a section on the Dermal Display animation and a really terrific verbal description of what is happening when you are watching it. I was fortunate enough to have been supplied the footage by Alcor which I merged with the animation and edited so that you can enjoy this special feature video.
