    Also, for finer applications, you can functionalize the surface of nanotubes to allow your body clear them out of your lungs/blood stream fast enough to completely avoid any harmful effects.

    Nano solar is going to be the best way to get free energy not costly buckypaper…

    Smart fabric, some cameras and a cpu…invisibility suit!!!

    this paper reminds me of the Harry Potter`s Newspaper.

    Will we actually be using this?

    Hello everyone. I’m a hip hop artist who is deeply inspired by the prospects of nanotechnology. It sometimes emerges in my writing. Come check out my new video “Molecular Replication”. watch?v=Fre9FV_qT0E

    oh you mean how they can destroy cancer cells?

    CNTs used as shown in these applications do not become airborne and won’t enter cells. 1) In the studies that show potential health risks researchers take individual CNTs and place them inside lungs etc. of mice. That doesn’t mean they can actually get there. 2) It is very difficult to separate an individual CNT, even from the raw material. Millions of dollars and tons of energy is spent trying to do this. 3) Here they are embedded in resin, etc.. It is not the same as asbestos.
