Yeah, the concept of sustainability is hot. Definitely ride the wave, and then hop on to the next one when it comes. It's good to periodically reframe your knowledge in a way that it fits with current trends - it makes your work relevant from a social and economic viewpoint.

Nanobots are just Star Trek Borg technology science fiction. For a nanobot to work it would have to be able to work on ONE single atom at a time. Right now the only way to even see an atom is with an electron microscope.

Besides needing an electron microscope built into them, nanobots would also need a processor, some sort of memory and wi-fi capabilities to function. Not to mention a power source and method of propulsion.

No way.

But those nanobot researches sure are on to some pretty lucrative R&D until all of that comes up.

The problem with TED is that it's about peoples trying to sell you their technology.
Not scientist explaining a discovery, salesman seling your their new product.

Thus not being objective, emphasizing the good sides while hiding others.

You're locked into the style of thinking associated with the current architecture of robots. Radical innovation only comes to be when people think outside of the box.

Nanotechnology is awesome. I am working toward a degree in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Nanotechnology (as well as Sustainability Leadership).

I'm really looking forward to the development of graphene, particularly as a semiconductor transistor in computer processors. There are currently problems with the band gap but there have been some proposed fixes and we're looking at a material that can theoretically help us create amazingly small computers. This is only one of the thousands of possible applications though.

Dude! Claytroniks? This guy is out of his gourd man, this would cost zillions of dollars. There's no way science can beat mother nature at achieving this phenomenon. You'll see.

And you base that assessment on what analysis and information exactly?

Yeah, claytronics and programmable matter are very interesting. I was looking into it quite a bit a couple months ago. We are far away from practical technology at this point but it is a possibility. Molecular self-assembly is a very popular field of research right now.

Imagine if you showed a smart phone to someone in the 50s when the power of the transistor was just being explored. They wouldn't even understand because of the trchnological gaps that were lept. The same thing is the case here. We are on a new frontier of discoveries. No one knows what we will discover or if/when it will be a practical technology, im just a patient and very curious onlooker. I hope it's sooner than later though! Catoms look very cool!
