Emerging Tech. – 2014 – 1

What is your favorite killer nanotechnology application, and why?

My two cents (but please share yours):

Here are the nanotechnology applications covered in previous picoblogs on this site. My current favorite is the Buckyball, because it was the first.

  • Buckyball
  • Carbon nanotube
  • Graphene
  • Nanoshell
  • Quantum Dot
  • Nanosilver
  • Nanoplasmonics
  • Nanohorn
  • Zeolite
  • Nanoscaffold
  • Silicene
  • MEMS
  • NEMS


  1. Being sadly techy ignorant, not to mention kind of a wise acre…my favorite is NaNoWriMo
    Ducking and hiding in my pillow fort

    • No need to duck and hide, Mona. NaNoWriMo works, sort of. 🙂
      If you’re curious about any of the listed nanotech applications, check out the picoblogs here in this site’s archives, mostly under Fun Factoids. When I want to look up a posted application, I just do a search on this site’s home page. The correct picoblog generally comes up. Also, Wikipedia is great for nanotechnology definitions. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Say what? Sometimes I think everyone speaks Greek except me.

    • Just a list of nanotech goodies, David. Many will make our lives better, soon, especially those used in medicine. Cheers, Ashley
