520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. In this book the author and founding father of nanotechnology, the science of engineering on a molecular level, predicts the coming changes to the economy and the environment as more manufacturing is done with extreme precision on the atomic level at a significantly lower cost. Author of the influential book Engines of Creation he explores the coming revolution in nano-scale engineering, and how it will change the world as we know it. Here he shows how rapid scientific progress is about to change our world. Thanks to atomically precise manufacturing, we will soon have the power to produce radically more of what people want, and at a lower cost. The result will shake the very foundations of our economy and environment. Already, scientists have constructed prototypes for circuit boards built of millions of precisely arranged atoms. The advent of this kind of atomic precision promises to change the way we make things cleanly, inexpensively, and on a global scale. It allows us to imagine a world where solar arrays cost no more than cardboard and aluminum foil, and laptops cost about the same. This provocative tour of cutting edge science and its implications by the field's founder and master, this book offers a mind-expanding vision of a world hurtling toward an unexpected future.
