About Us

I'm obsessed with nanotechnology and the impact it will have on our society. Unfortunately, much of nanotech is still in the research phase and won't converted to usable products until the technology is proven and scaled, which will take several years. Nevertheless, there is a ton of ongoing research in nanotech geared towards several applications, including green energy, medicine, sustainability, telecommunications, transportation, space exploration, and much much more. In this podcast, I will be covering recent publications and articles about specific nanotechnology in development and discuss each technology's function, potential, and challenges.

Check-In: I Failed My Dry(ish) Month..

E05-04-2019: I plan on doing weekly check-ins starting today. Today, I was so out of it that I didn't even know what day it is (I say it's May 6th, but it was actually May 4th). And I have failed BOTH my dry month and dryish month as of this week. So you win, alcohol... See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

E04-27-2019: I finally got a new microphone for audio recording, which seems to work pretty well! Listen to this silky smooth audio which entails me recalling how busy work has gotten in just a week, complaining about how much time I've spent on Netflix, and failing to remember when the movie Hurt Locker came out (it was 2008). New nanotech episodes coming soon! Enjoy! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nanotech News #6: Light Levitation, Microcyborgs, and Making Nanomaterials using AI

EI apologize in advance for this audio. I was in a noise-heavy room, so the end result after editing sounds kinda distorted. This episode of Nanotech News includes three recent developments: (1) moving and levitating objects with light, (2) fusing technology with microbial life to clean up the planet, and (3) discovering 2D materials using artificial intelligence.Intro Music: "Sunshine" by Iksonhttps://soundcloud.com/iksonReferences:Levitating or Propelling Objects with Light: https://www.nanotechnologyworld.org/single-post/2019/03/20/Levitating-objects-with-light?fbclid=IwAR1xxxLO1ui9Z4xVCg4XdmprQ5iMtGzzXfRELyvXBAlwIqOv8iOrLZMHj24Microcyborgs: https://www.nanotechnologyworld.org/single-post/2019/04/15/Rotibots-Cyborgs-made-of-microfauna-and-microbeadsUsing Deep Learning to Discover New 2D Materials: https://www.nanotechnologyworld.org/single-post/2019/04/11/Deep-learning-casts-wide-net-for-novel-2D-materials See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nanotech News #6: Light Levitation, Microcyborgs, and Making Nanomaterials using AI

What If Humans Could Camouflage Like Chameleons?

EWhat if humans had the same camouflage ability as chameleons? Can we make suits that can shift colors and patterns and allow humans to blend in with any surface? How can we build materials that controllably change color in real time? Actually, I believe that all of these are possible...not with future technology, but with our current technology.Music:"Sunshine" by Iksonhttp://soundcloud.com/iksonExperiment studying chameleon skin:Teyssier, J.; Saenko, S.

Coming Soon: The Best of the Best from Nanotech

EWill we ever be technologically advanced enough to build Tony Stark's nanotechnology suit from Avengers: Infinity War? Or to make clothing and surfaces that change color like a chameleon? Or to have self-assembling furniture composed of microrobots? These are the types of questions I LOVE to discuss. Very soon, I will make episodes centered around these topics and more!Email me at nanotechjunkie@gmail.com for feedback or ideas for future nanotech episodes!

Nanotech News #5: Cancer-Killing Nanobots?

EI finally got to record an episode about nanobots, which is a HOT topic in nanotechnology. Many news outlets have covered nanobots in recent years, particularly because of their potential to target and destroy tumors in the body. But...what exactly is a nanobot? How can we make a nanobot kill cancer cells? We should probably learn more about them before we stick them in our bloodstream. That's what this episode is for!Reference to publication about controlling nanoscale beads in cells:X. Wang et al. "Intracellular manipulation and measurement with multipole magnetic tweezers."
