Under Reporting Nanotech Products

The Woodrow Wilson Center’s Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies has updated their list of consumer products using nanotechnologies, and the total now stands at a massively under reported 320.

Under reported? Well an analysis of the list indicates that to qualify for inclusion a product must have been mentioned on the internet, in English, and specifically mention nanotechnology. Polyglots might like to take a look at the number of nanoproducts available in German or the sort of things you can buy from Thailand.
