The corallary to rapid change is that new technologies should be retarded to some extent. Something better is likely to come along and the capital put into early technology would be to some extent wasted.

Practically this means subsudise R&D thru pilot production. Do not subsidize markets.

We've deleted a post that was long, factually incorrect, and off-topic. Please don't post about materials science in posts that have nothing to do with materials science, and don't post about UFO's at all.



i get none of wat dis is
e-mail me k

I saw that you have a page that discusses patent-related resources at http://crnano.typepad.com/crnblog/2005/06/new_inventions.html. I wanted to suggest adding www.freepatentsonline.com to the page. This web site has free PDF downloading (instead of having to page through TIFFs like at the US PTO). It is by far the best free patent searching site.

Thanks, James, but we don't provide links to commercial ventures in our posts. You just got a freebie in your comment; but if you abuse the opportunity, we'll prohibit you from posting.


i have an idea for wind mills that would increase power and be very simple , what can i do to make a few buck telling someine

Can anyone help me in the field of nanotechnology? We are a team of middle schoolers in a lego robotics competition that need some ideas for using nanotechnology -- but they have to be rather UNIQUE -- something that isn't just talked about by Time Magazine and everyone else... our project has to be about nanotechnology that will help the world & mankind but is UNIQUE... --Got any good ideas?? Help!!!

How about a nanoscrubber that desalinizes and purifies sea water?


Maybe try to think of things that would be relevant to your life as students.

Blackboards/whiteboards could become computer display surfaces. Teachers can still "write" on them but they won't be rubbing material onto the board, they will drag a marker across and the surface will change color. Images, movies, prepared lesson plans can appear where the teacher wants.

Or, desks could change shape to adjust to different student sizes - middle schoolers especially have a wide variation as kids go through growth spurts at different ages.

How about clothes and fashions? They're already working on threads that can glow. Nanotech could give us clothes that can change color, texture, stretchiness, even shape and size. You could select a menu on your computer and be wearing a whole new outfit in a few seconds.

One really likely nanotech result is new materials that will be stronger, lighter and cheaper. Here's an idea - how about a clear, outdoor roof or dome that covers your athletic field so you can still have P.E. and sports when it rains? Maybe there could even be air conditioning so it would never be too hot or cold for outdoor activities.

I'm sure there are a lot of other possibilities like this. Think about your daily life and how new kinds of materials and technologies could make things better, easier and more fun. Good luck -


i am 4th sem. metallurgy student and am suppose to present few papers at reputed colleges tht too on nanotechnology can u give guideline


also give me some idea of possibilities in robbotics


hello, i m an F.Y student of Mechnical Engg.
