  • Technologies to Watch from ZNet news.
  • Nanotechnology: the Coming Revolution in Molecular Manufacturing - from the Foresight Institute. Not really into Instrumentation but futuristic certainly, and I guess that some measurements will have to be made to make it all come together. Very interesting stuff - Comment from Jim Russell ICEweb
