Feynman speculated about the coming ability to rearrange atoms and molecules. In 1974, Japanese engineering professor Norio Taniguchi named this nascent field ‘nanotechnology’. So, what is nanotechnology and how could it affect future innovations? Nanotechnology is the science of manipulating things on the nanoscale – at the level of molecules and atoms. While humans live on the scale of metres, atoms and molecules are measured in nanometres. A…
