To have a world of mature nanotech with nanoassemblers in every home is a
dream of mine. But I wonder if the government would allow the public direct
access to nano assemblers? In the cause of preventing terrorism as well as
accidents I could see the governments of the world only allowing direct
access to nano to government and corporate entities. The ulterior motive
would be to maintain their strong control over society.

Or would capitalism and corporate greed be the reason for a nanoassembler in
every home? And even if so, would these be close to the "anything boxes"
we hope for? I would like to think that in the world we are brought back
into (cryonic reanimation) there will be home models that can build houses
and vehicles.

Any thoughts?
