Nanotechnology - Science Fact or Science Fiction?
Some nanotechnologists and futurists have claimed that we’ll be overrun by out-of-control nanomachines spreading like a virus across the globe. Others argue that nanofactories and nanoassemblers capable of manufacturing virtually anything, much like the replicators in Star Trek, will be with us in just a few years time. Join Augustus Prime as he examines nanotechnology.

Advances in Neurotechnology
Our brains control every movement we make. Most of us take for granted our ability to pick up a cup or change the television station. However, for people who have lost a limb or become paralyzed, the inability to do these things means a loss of freedom and independence. This video segment from Greater Boston describes how neuroscientists and bioengineers have teamed up to create a system that allows people who have lost motor functions to control electronic devices through their thoughts alone.

Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
