Videos like this is the reason why i bookmarked this website. Keep them coming.

I want a laptop like that too :)
lardo (guest)  -  October 17, 2006, 22:21
my god, that is some advanced shit tight there
lardo (guest)  -  October 17, 2006, 22:22
my god, that is some advanced shit Right* there
mbandgeek  -  October 17, 2006, 22:33
that is the coolest thing that i have ever seen!! A laptop whose only waste product is water and air! wow!
Brody  -  October 17, 2006, 22:49
I agree with Faithless. But also to bad me nor any of you will ever see somthing like this.

Gosh!! When is this going to happen?!
marc (guest)  -  October 18, 2006, 00:26
you should not believe everything you see on TV... its an ad from a company, NanoREX ;-)
Faith in Humanity (guest)  -  October 18, 2006, 04:53
If humanity can make it that far, *yes* we will have nanotech like this in oh, the year 2500 or so? So unless you keep your head in a jar for another 500 years, you'll all miss it =p

this is scary... this video freaks me out!
chains  -  October 18, 2006, 14:18
this is.. amazing if its real!
pre (guest)  -  October 18, 2006, 17:10
polease, they were arranging frickin molecular structure, what the hell were all those little tiny machines made of! maybe this will happen one day.
Deleted0001  -  October 18, 2006, 17:46
I... I... I have no words. This is just... amazing!

They seems to be quite serious:
The Smartest Human (guest)  -  October 19, 2006, 04:35
This is the biggest bunch of BS. Nanotechnology is such a freakin joke. The field is a bunch of Star Trek geeks with a science degree thinking they can someday make a cup of coffee appear out of thin air. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, etc.

broken (guest)  -  October 19, 2006, 13:14
My immediate thought was: wow, millions of small machines that can break. Imagine if one of those millions of tiny conveyor belts snap...
Calm (guest)  -  October 19, 2006, 23:19
Key word is CONCEPT.
fish  -  October 21, 2006, 07:51
wow this is so cool
Stupid (guest)  -  October 21, 2006, 09:59
This is so stupid. I'd like to know what builds this machine in the first place. And how exactly are all those arms and conveyor belts moved? I could draw this in 3D-studio also.
jk  -  October 21, 2006, 10:26
This is so great. But the real cool video would be showing the factory that built the factory.
Niedec (guest)  -  October 22, 2006, 07:37
Uh, this sort of stuff isn't exactly new. It's been around for a while. They've been using in microprocessors at IBM for years. So yes, basic construction is possible. It's just that nobody's ever tried something this complex. I agree that it'll take FOREVER to make these things, though, and would be extremely expensive. Also, it only makes things with carbon, so that leaves out quite a few ideas for actually being productive. Plausible? Yep. Worth it? Sort day. As for "The Smartest Human", yeah. I totally agree with you. "You can't fool me, it's turtles all the way down!" XD
Draugovininkas  -  October 22, 2006, 15:12
Niedec's right. Scientists worked with such technology and one of them tol me that they were constructig sensors using this technology... but to use it in mass production... maybe a hundread years or so...
SecondSmartest (guest)  -  October 23, 2006, 05:06
Just think about how stupid humanity was 50 years ago thinking in 10 years computers will speak and understand. And who of you 10 years ago thought we can have computers this good at homes as we do now? Technology goes forward faster then we can imagine. And as to making coffee out of nowhere - coffee is mostly just a mixture of oxygen, hydrogen and carbon, you can obtain all of those from air. I would be rather sceptical about warp speeds instead.
SecondBroken (guest)  -  October 23, 2006, 05:17
Imagine your computer's processor is made of bilions of tiny parts, why doesn't any of them break? Amazing, innit?
Einstein (guest)  -  October 23, 2006, 07:02
I like pie
luder  -  October 23, 2006, 18:58
To Broken (guest) and Stupid (guest): this is only an artistic representation of nanomachines.
Yes (guest)  -  October 28, 2006, 20:27
This might happen, in perhaps 61283128731297836 years or so, if were lucky. I hope ill live the day to see it, about the same probability.
SaxxonPike (guest)  -  October 31, 2006, 14:38
Despite having very little waste material and involving very little human interaction (in the production process, not the development) it will still cost even more to make something like that, and in turn make the final product cost assloads more.
Lebo (guest)  -  November 7, 2006, 23:23
If you look at this, and then look at the workings of biology, and see the similarities, I challenge you to seriously reject the Intelligent Design hypothesis. Very interesting video, but we'll have to see how it turns out irl.
SNOOTSNOT  -  November 21, 2006, 01:24
Me foot itches.
Sander (guest)  -  December 7, 2006, 11:19
In 1960 they thought we'd all be in flying machines by the year 2000.... Similar maybe????
Tom (guest)  -  December 9, 2006, 01:41
yeah yeah.... Now build them. Even I could come up with an incredible machine like that, the challenge is actually making it.
^RunQaBalle^ (guest)  -  December 14, 2006, 19:21
That was very interesting and cool!
PHB (guest)  -  March 3, 2007, 08:49
First they need to make the machines that make the machines to make the assembly machines but who or what or how do we make the very first machines/ how long would it take to get every set upin the first place. Thats only for one assembly package, imagine getting 10,000 assembly sets going at once. That will take a very long time. Also they need to make the things to make the nanno assembly together to make the product.
PHB (guest)  -  March 3, 2007, 08:56
This tech might be good app for making supplies in advanced in space stations for future astronaut when they arrive so that they would have working, brand new stuff.
Yamamushi (guest)  -  March 7, 2007, 08:13
Look where we were with technology 50 years ago, I'm willing to bet in 100 years this kind of technology will be possible, especially when we reach singularity (computer intelligence surpasses human intelligence). Current developments in nanotechnology are obviously not this far, but we're building the foundations for future technology everyday. As for the trolls who said something making things out of thin air, that would violate the basic laws of matter, the video clearly explains the materials being provided are carbon and hydrogen as well as other basic materials. If you don't understand the science behind it, you don't have the right to ridicule it.
yawn (guest)  -  June 21, 2008, 04:53
Nature already does this inside cells.
eltranced  -  July 9, 2010, 06:57
i came! but seriously this is a bit more probable but not by much then time machines, teleportation and shrinking humans
HMMM (guest)  -  October 13, 2010, 21:31
Guess it is possible...need a really powerful microscope and some really advanced tools that have not been thought of yet in order to build this. Somehow program each equipment in the assembly line to do its job. Kinda crazy to think of right now, maybe in couple hundred years.
Dash (guest)  -  August 30, 2011, 14:02
Holy concise data btaamn. Lol!
