Subject: EUREKA et al: IBM scientists discover nanotech communication method
Old-fashioned magic just doesn't seem so impressive these days....
On a somewhat different note, I'm curious (quantum incompetent that I am) what potential quantum tunneling may have in nanocomm. Web search so far found a tunneling based transistor http://www.aip.org/physnews/graphics/html/tunnel.htm, but nothing regarding nanocomm. Freitas have anything to say about this? This even a conceivable use? Am I barking up the wrong quantum effect?
Amazing! I was worried about how they would be able to transmit information and control the nanobots and structures. Now we may have a way of doing it, it seems more effective than using chemicals, light waves, and ascoutics to control the nanostructures.
