Have you ever had a fly buzz by your ear. If you have then imagine that being an electronic fly. Wouldn't that be cool yeah that is the first step of nanotechnology.
So nanotechnology is a really big thing for the U.S. right now. Nanotech would be like a mechanical bug that is electronical. So lets say I made a fly with a tiny little circuit board and the board made it fly around just like a fly and just for the complexity lets say that i had a really small ultra-sonic sensor so it wouldn't run in to anything. To have technology that small is very hard because components for circuit boards are hand made. I will get into more detail in the next part of this page.
So as I said above if a man made fly was to go by your ear that would be cool right? So nanotech is very self explanatory. It it is nano(very small) tech(technology). Nanotech is a big step into the future. So nanotech consists of three more things that mankind needs. Mankind still needs smaller components, smaller circuit boards, and a very accurate person that can solder in components or a machine that can solder very accurately.
