Abstract:

Flying cars, space travel for everyone, the elimination of poverty and hunger, and powerful new tools to combat disease and even fight aging - these are some of the amazing predicted developments of nanotechnology, the emerging science of designing and building machines at the molecular and atomic levels. [In this book, the author] explains how nanotechnology will make possible many of the science fiction dreams of the past. [In the book, he also] analyzes the benefits as well as the potential risks.-Dust jacket.
