Read More: The Brain vs. The Computer “Throughout history, people have compared the brain to different inventions.” Scientists Are Convinced Mind Transfer Is the Key to Immortality “Call it mind transfer, uploading, brain backup, whatever—the idea of copying the human brain to a computer so it can live on without the body has a strong hold on futurists, neuroscientists, and folks that just want to live forever.” Mind-reading Technology Speeds Ahead “Jack Gallant perches on the edge of a swivel chair in his lab...

The next step in nanotechnology | George Tulevski

Nearly every other year the transistors that power silicon computer chip shrink in size by half and double in performance, enabling our devices to become more mobile and accessible. But what happens when these components can't get any smaller? George Tulevski researches the unseen and untapped world of nanomaterials. His current work: developing chemical processes to compel billions of carbon nanotubes to assemble themselves into the patterns needed to build circuits, much the same way natural organisms build intricate, diverse and elegant structures. Could they hold the secret to the next generation of computing? TEDTalks is a daily video podcast...

Michio Kaku: Can Nanotechnology Create Utopia?

Dr. Kaku addresses the question of the possibility of utopia, the perfect society that people have tried to create throughout history. These dreams have not been realized because we have scarcity. However, now we have nanotechnology, and with nanotechnology, perhaps, says Dr. Michio Kaku, maybe in 100 years, we'll have something called the replicator, which will create enormous abundance.

What is nanotechnology?

Subscribe: Scroll down for more information… A short, easy to understand, classroom-friendly introduction to nanotechnology - and why you should care. Note: This video refers to atoms as the basic building blocks of everything. This may make chemists and others a little uncomfortable, as most things are built up from molecules. However, because even molecules are themselves made up of atoms arranged in very specific ways, this atom-centric view of nanotechnology still makes sense - especially when introducing the underlying concepts at a basic level!

using Nanotechnology to coat objects

Ultra-Ever Dry is a super hydrophobic (water) and oleo-phobic (hydrocarbons) coating that will completely repel almost any liquid. Ultra-Ever Dry uses proprietary nanotechnology to coat an object and create a barrier of air on its surface. This barrier repels water, refined oil, wet concrete, and other liquids unlike any other coating.
