The Woodrow Wilson Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies has a great database for anyone who has to give a presentation on the impact of nanotechnology, with over 500 products listed including the computer I am using right now. I was a little puzzled to see that on one hand the project is claiming a big increase in the number of products avilable, while in the small print they say that they have now included some Asian products with automated google translations – making it hard to distinguish between genuine growth and that caused by the addition of new data sources.
I’m glad to see that the infamous and rather terrifying looking Nanometer-silver Cryptomorphic Condom still makes the list, however dubious its claims may be.
I have to admit to being less than impressed. Over 500 consumer products? Does that make it an industrial revolution yet?
