I look forward to having something smaller than a Ford Galaxy inserted into my body. Bring it on as soon as possible.

Perhaps, according to the mainstream definition of nano, we have already something in our bodies that fits those characteristics. If we refer to the original Drexler-Feynman nano, it is going to be some time before somebody actually coughs up something that can be inoculated safely. Perhaps we should take bets on the timeframe?

Having said that, what about a little engineered DNA? Does that count?
