Earlier today we mentioned that the Burch/Drexler nanofactory video had made it into pop culture with a posting at YouTube. Well, tonight, more evidence that nanotechnology may finally be "ready for prime time," as inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil makes an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Kurzweil, who is a member of the CRN Global Task Force, spoke about medical nanobots and the future merging of man and machine. Of course, the segment was played for laughs and Ray was a good sport. Tonight's program will be shown again on the Comedy Central cable channel (in the US) at 1 am EST, and several more times tomorrow, including at 8 pm EST.
