Nanotechnology of the future
To me this Xplore cycle has been an extremely important and rewarding experience, this term having chosen topic: Nanotechnology of the future. I chose this particular subject as I had an interest in that field, the broadness and complexity of this subject has allowed me to chose and specialise in a particular part of nanotechnology. This being the uses and implications of nanotechnology when applied to non-living matter, meaning things like: wood, steel, fabrics, etc.
While researching I had discovered that I could not just research into the uses nanotechnology in non-living matter without branching off into living things, humans in particular. This is because nanotechnology used in non-living matter is applied, to benefit living organisms. For instance to use nano to create surfaces that do not require cleaning would benefit us human’s everyday lives. So once again I decided to settle more on how may this technology benefit humans.
The applications of nanotechnology are endless, for instance you could strengthen materials for better durability, create better medical treatments and help strengthen human muscles. All these are purely for the benefit of humans in the future.
We may not be sure where nanotechnology is headed in the future, but we can be sure that whatever changes that may occur will all headed in a positive direction.
To improve the quality of life…
for the many generations to come.
