I am writing a paper on nanotechnology and I would like to know what CRN has to say about nanotechnology as related to computor science.

Thank you,
David Malone


Mike Treder, CRN

On our Benefits page, we make some predictions about using advanced nanotechnology to build computers:

Molecular manufacturing can create computer logic gates a few nanometers on a side, and efficient enough to be stacked in 3D. An entire supercomputer can fit into a cubic millimeter, and cost a small fraction of a cent. With actuators smaller than a bacterium, a thin, high-resolution computer display will be easy (and cheap) to build. With GHz mechanical frequencies, a mostly-mechanical device can sense and produce radio waves. Thus computation, communication, and display are all feasible with pure diamondoid technology.

Computers, PDAs, and cell phones can be cheap enough for even the poorest people on earth to own one, and contain more than enough processing capability for a voice interface for illiterate people. Distributed networking hardware can likewise be very cheap, and distributed networking software, though not trivial, is already being developed. The whole world could get "wired" within a year.

You can read more about building computers and other high performance products here.

One more thing, David. If you're really interested in learning about computing with molecular nanotechnology, check out this paper.
