“I’ll be there in a nano”

Physorg.com announces that ” Nano has officially become the most misused word in the English language” and gives a nice early 21st century style primer on nanotechnology complete with “Imagine submicroscopic machines that rove about the body and scrape plaque deposits from your artery walls, repair damage caused by trauma and attack cancer cells” and the assertion that “Nanomachines are not just on the drawing board anymore, a few working models- like the gears above – are regularly produced.”

Before anyone starts grumbling about Apple hijacking ‘nano’ lets remember that it comes from the Greek word for ‘dwarf’ rather than the English word ‘nanotechnology.”
