The World Transformed, Part 3

Nanotechnology promises to change our world in ways that are difficult to predict, or even imagine.

Are you ready for...

...Star Trek style replicators that would allow you to make anything, ANYTHING, you wanted?

...artificial robotic blood cells that will turn an Average Joe into a world-class athlete, or allow you to hold your breath under water for an hour at a time?

...programmable "smart" matter than can take whatever form you want? It's a suitcase. No, a bicycle! No, a TV! No, a puppy!

Nanotechnology promises all of this plus a lot more. We're joined by a distinguished panel of guests who will help us understand the benefits, and risks, of this technology that will be with us sooner than most of us expect.

J. Storrs Hall is a scientist, visionary, entrepreneur, and the president of the Foresight Institute.

Mike Treder is the Executive Director of Center for Responsible Nanotechnology, and one of the most popular and well-received professional speakers on nanotechnology.

Christine Peterson writes, lectures, and briefs the media on coming powerful technologies, especially nanotechnology. She is the co- founder and Vice President of Foresight Institute.
