- "Thus it seems the government views nanobots as a sci-fi fantasy with only dangerous implications, further implying in the FAQ that the only reason someone would want to create nanobots would be for destructive purposes."
Pethokoukis goes on to quote "nanobot advocate" Eric Drexler and his visions of evil "laptop computers with a billion times more processing power than modern machines, or sheets of tough, flexible solar-cell material suitable for reroofing a house or repaving a driveway, or 3-D video wallpaper, or parts that snap together to make a new nanofactory."
The columnist concludes: "Nothing dangerous sounding there. Actually, it all sounds pretty cool."
Amen, Brother James.
