Nanotechnology: striking a balance between glorification and 'grey goo'

Great things can happen when you think small: thousands of times smaller than a grain of sand, much finer than your thinnest hair. So small that swimming among water molecules would feel as though you were in a pool of thick jam.<p>Get to this scale and you can play Lego with individual molecules. You …

Nanotechnology in food: more than a question of taste

<b>Tim Lang:</b> 'Do you really want to eat these ingredients?'<p>I am troubled by the rise of nanotechnology in the food industry. It's being developed far in advance of public awareness. We've been here before: additives, irradiation, and genetic modification were all fixes promoted by industry which came …

Nanotechnology on the crime scene

Imagine a crime scene: a person in a pool of blood, and a sheet of paper with a confused message, with overlapped sentences that appear to have been written by more than one hand. Some of the things forensic experts would do today are detecting fingerprints around the room, collecting samples of …

Nanotech

Nanoparticles are increasingly used as coatings on clothing to make it waterproof, microbicidal, UV-blocking or antistatic<p>The Consumer Products Inventory lists over 1,600 products that have been identified by the manufacturer as containing nanoparticles – particles between one and 100 nanometres …

Wait, There's Nanotechnology in My Food?

Think about your last meal. Whether it was a big, juicy burger or a kale and spinach salad, there's a good chance that something in that meal was grown or preserved with nanotechnology.<p><b>For a little more than a decade, the food</b> industry has been using nanotechnology to change the way we grow and …

Nanotech additives act like minuscule ball bearings to lubricate moving metal surfaces that come into contact inside engines, improving fuel efficiency and reducing wear and tear<p>The Consumer Products Inventory lists over 1,600 products that have been identified by the manufacturer as containing …

Terrawatch: The crash that splintered Earth's crust

One of the things that distinguishes Earth from other planets is its plate tectonics. But how did this moving jigsaw surface begin? New research suggests that a 3.26 billion-year-old asteroid impact may have kick-started the process.<p>The impact crater has long since gone (recycled by plate …

Google will have sole control over the interfaces of Android Auto, Wear and TV

You'd better get used to the interfaces you saw for Android Auto, Wear and TV at the Google I/O conference this past week -- you're going to be seeing them a lot. Google tells <i>Ars Technica</i> that it will maintain sole (official) control over the interface for all three new platforms, rather than give …
