Nanotechnology may be near

If you’ve heard the term “nanotechnology” you may have heard it used incorrectly as a marketing buzzword. The term leads back to K. Eric Drexler, who wrote in 1986 in his book “Engines of Creation” how nanotechnology will revolutionize our civilization by giving us the ability to construct materials and entire products molecule by molecule.

Scientists from The University of Manchester reportedly finally built a molecular robot which has such capability.

On the plus side, that may be the most profound breakthrough of the 21st century. Not only will it revolutionize our lives along with 3D printing and machine learning, but it may also help us better understand the nanoscale world leading to improvements in medicine and other areas.
