How Nanotechnology Could Reengineer Us
from Keithly:

Nanotechnology is an important new area of research that promises significant advances in electronics, materials, biotechnology, alternative energy sources, and dozens of other applications. The graphic below illustrates, at a personal level, the potential impact on each of us. And where electrical measurement is required, Keithley instrumentation is being used in an expanding list of nanotechnology research and development settings.

Nanotech To Fight Counterfeiters

Researchers have made a new type of watermark that remains invisible until a person’s breath reveals it. Engineers envision the technology being used as labels to fight the sale of counterfeit goods. 

"One challenge in fighting counterfeiting is the need to stay ahead of the counterfeiters," said Nicholas Kotov, a University of Michigan chemical engineering professor who led the team that created the labels, in a statement. ”You can verify that you have the real product with just a breath of air.”

One meal in San Francisco provides a glimpse at the future of food—and it sure looks fancy.

In June, I sat down to a dinner in San Francisco that couldn’t have taken place a decade ago.

For the appetizer, the long table of guests shared bowls…

If you’ve ever broken a bone, you know firsthand just how horrible traditional casts are. Hell, even if you haven’t broken a bone, you still probably have a decent idea of how awful casts are, assuming you’ve been within smelling distance of anyone who’s wearing one. After about a week they start to smell like a rotting hog carcass that’s been baking in the sun for three days, and often get itchier than a poison oak rash — but thankfully technology might soon make them obsolete.
