Sampling MIT: Nanotechnologies for Better Living

Photo: nano structure graphic representation

Imaginative MIT scientists are taking the microscopic properties of molecules to create larger-than-life consumer goods that will change the way we live.

 

A battery built by a virus might power electronic gadgets, or even transportation systems. Forget pills- drug release systems implanted in the human body, using advances in nanoengineering and biology, will keep us healthier than ever.

 

This exhibit explores the beginning of an exciting new field of applied science.
