First-ever Nanotechnology Venture Offers Investment Opportunity in Cutting-Edge Startups Developing Molecular Assemblers and Assembler Dependent Products

NEW YORK, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoTechnology Development Corporation (NTDC) today announced its first public stock offering in New York State. NTDC is the world's first public venture uniquely focused on developing molecular machine technology.

To the company's knowledge, this represents the first opportunity for investors to purchase stock directly in a nanotechnology company across the World Wide Web. The corporate website with information on NTDC is

NTDC funds scientists and startup companies engaged in developing Molecular Nanotechnology (MNT) as defined by Dr. K. Eric Drexler of the Foresight Institute, Palo Alto, CA. Feasible design approaches for nanotechnology include "Bottom Up" (building directly with atoms) and "Top Down" (component miniaturization) approaches.

Applications for nanotechnology include the development of nanoscopic supercomputers with atomic dimension components, atomically assembled diamondoid super composites, programmable self-replicating machinery and products only possible with nanotechnology offering unique benefits for biotechnology, medicine and a wide range of other industries.

The stated goal of NTDC is to develop a "Molecular Assembler" -- a microscopic device capable of self-replication and programmable atomic precision chemistry for use in molecular manufacturing, starting with NTDC's "Top Down" approach, "Fractal Shape Shifting Robots" theoretically capable of scaling down to the molecular realm. Near term first generation Robot applications include programmed heavy construction, without traditional labor.
