I must admit that I hadn’t realised just how far nanotechnology (the science of atomic scale engineering) has actually come in a few short years.
This interesting Business 2.0 article looks at just one example, the use of nano sized fibres to create a whole new range of fabrics including waterproof, stainproof and soft cuddly stuff. The Nano-Tex company certainly looks like it’s on to a winner. More on nano stuff here.
