How nanotechnology is shaping the future

Share this story

Nanotechnology — the manipulation of matter on a molecular level — to shape the future of a wide variety of industries. Consumer electronics, silicon, and health care are a few major areas where nanotechnology could provide major advances in the future, but those aren't the only places where it can make an impact — researchers at UCLA recently used nanotechnology to create a "booze pill" that lowers the intoxication level of lab rats. While it may take years for the nanotech findings to make their way into consumer-facing products, this research may lend a clue as to what kind of technology we have to look forward to.
