"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."
