"While you will keep hearing about the new moves (and the misses) that Google, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Oracle, Infosys, TCS, Wipro and others of the ilk make, it will be ‘nanotech’ that people will add to their tech vocabulary in 2007. That’s because nanotech (engineering materials at less than one billionth of a metre or the size of three to five atoms), isn’t just a lab experiment anymore but is spreading fast, in some exciting ways.

Early in 2007 IIT Delhi is holding a workshop to throw light on nanotech’s progress. Globally, about $18 billion has been invested in various nanotech related projects. The US-based National Science Foundation predicts the global market for nanotechnology-related products and services will be $1 trillion in 2015."

"People are less afraid of nano-technology - tiny man-made machines, invisible to the human eye - than they are handguns, according to a US survey."

Nanocar created at Rice University in 2005

The Rice team has already followed up the nanocar work by designing a light-driven nanocar and a nanotruck that's capable of carrying a payload.

"This minuscule submarine, molded from an acrylic liquid that solidifies when it comes in contact with a computer-controlled laser beam, measures just four millimeters in length. It is hoped that such devices will soon have Fantastic Voyage–style medical applications for treating the body on a microscopic level."
