The Future of Nanotechnology

The Future of Nanotechnology | Miniaturisation and nanotechnology | Scoop.it
The future of nanotechnology is completely uncharted territory. It is almost impossible to predict everything that nanoscience will bring to the world
Jessica Wilds's insight:

This article introduces nanotechnology and talks about how nanotechnology will one day be able to cure every disease or illness. While it does discuss the positives of nanotechnology it also discusses the negatives of it as well. The article also discusses about how if there is no major breakthrough soon the funding for nanotechnology will stop and nanotechnology will vanish.

Researchers Create 3D Microchip Using Nanotechnology

Researchers Create 3D Microchip Using Nanotechnology | Miniaturisation and nanotechnology | Scoop.it

Scientists from the University of Cambridge have created, for the first time, a new type of microchip which allows information to travel in three dimensions. Currently, microchips can only pass digital information in a very limited way - from either left to right or front to back.
Researchers believe that in the future a 3D microchip would enable additional storage capacity on chips by allowing information to be spread across several layers instead of being compacted into one layer, as is currently the case.

Justin Hall-Tipping: Freeing energy from the grid | Video on TED.com

What would happen if we could generate power from our windowpanes?
Jessica Wilds's insight:

This is a great video because Justin Hall-Tipping talks about what has allready been discovered about nanotachnology and how it will be able to change how we create electricity and other items.

The Future of Computers | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network | Miniaturisation and nanotechnology | Scoop.it

With much progress being made in nanotechnology, the future of computers has two directions: nanotechnology and cells. Nanotechnology is the engineering of a system at the molecular scale. These processes are either “bottom-up” or “top-down”.

“Bottom –up” is the construction at the atomic level one atom at a time while “top-down” is using precise tools to achieve nanotechnological scales. Nanocomputing will give rise to four possible types of computers: electronic nanocomputers, biochemical and chemical nanocomputers, mechanical nanocomputers, and quantum nanocomputers. Nanotechnology allows for much smaller devices to be built without wasting space because it is built one atom at a time. For instance, silicon transmitters will be based on carbon nanofibers which are faster, smaller, and consumes less energy.
