Hillarious Daily Show clip on nanotechnology

The dorky but savvy "news" reporter Samantha Bee gives us an update on what nanotechnology might have in store for us. It's also good to see that she found an important use for all those left over Christmas Robosapien presents.

Nanotechnology everywhere

My life is a little consumed with nanotechnology lately. We've been blogging about it a bunch over on Science Buzz (see our nanotechnology feed). I am also working on exhibit prototypes on the subject. What's iteresting is trying to suss out what people know about this subject.

At a BBQ this weekend it was clear that most of my friends had heard of it but thought it was pretty dorky. No one thought it was evil, but no one thought it was the "next industrial revolution" either. I am still curious about how we can make this subject as appealing as posed human cadavers or brightly colored lizards and snakes.
