Engines of creation by K. Eric Drexler( Book )

45 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: This brilliant work heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment, and makes astounding yet well-founded projections for the future
Unbounding the future : the nanotechnology revolution by K. Eric Drexler( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the field of medicine, toxic waste, and production relating how they will revolutionize life in the future
Nanosystems : molecular machinery, manufacturing, and computation by K. Eric Drexler( Book )

15 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nanosystems then applies the analytical tools and concepts developed in the first section to the design of nanomechanical components, devices, and systems. It describes nanomechanical gears, bearings, motors, sensors, logic gates, submicron 1000 MIPS computers (consuming 10[superscript -8] times as much power as comparable computers today), and systems able to join simple molecules to build complex products. The last section discusses how chemical, biochemical, and proximal probe technologies can be used to build complex molecular objects and how this capability can be used to implement molecular manufacturing." "Bringing together physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, and computer science, Nanosystems provides an indispensable introduction to the emerging field of molecular nanotechnology."--Jacket
Radical abundance : how a revolution in nanotechnology will change civilization by K. Eric Drexler( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author and founding father of nanotechnology, the science of engineering on a molecular level, predicts the coming changes to the economy and the environment as more manufacturing is done with extreme precision on the atomic level at a significantly lower cost. Author of the influential book Engines of Creation he explores the coming revolution in nano-scale engineering, and how it will change the world as we know it. Here he shows how rapid scientific progress is about to change our world. Thanks to atomically precise manufacturing, we will soon have the power to produce radically more of what people want, and at a lower cost. The result will shake the very foundations of our economy and environment. Already, scientists have constructed prototypes for circuit boards built of millions of precisely arranged atoms. The advent of this kind of atomic precision promises to change the way we make things cleanly, inexpensively, and on a global scale. It allows us to imagine a world where solar arrays cost no more than cardboard and aluminum foil, and laptops cost about the same. This provocative tour of cutting edge science and its implications by the field's founder and master, this book offers a mind-expanding vision of a world hurtling toward an unexpected future

Little by little = petit à petit by Jean Rouch( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic from 1970 by Jean Rouch, one of the pivotal figures in the French New Wave and in the history of ethnographic cinema. An innovative semi-improvised feature film about young men from Niger exploring life in Paris and learning to appreciate traditional values back home. Like Jaguar, and starring the three main actors from that film, Petit a Petit is an exercise in what Rouch called ethno-fiction, an idiosyncratic blend of fiction and observational documentary

2 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An overview of the science of nanotechnology, which aims to develop means of rearranging matter at the atomic or molecular level via the use of microscopic machines ('nanomachines'). Implications for manufacturing are discussed, as well as aspects of the related field of molecular electronics. Eric Drexler, author of "Engines of creation", and regarded as the father of nanotechnology, is one of the scientists and engineers who appear discussing the science and their views about its future
