Drexler, K. Eric

Eric Drexler is a researcher concerned with emerging technologies and their consequences for the future. This interest led him to initiate studies in the field of molecular nanotechnology - an anticipated technology based on molecular machines able to build objects to complex atomic specifications. The possibilities he has identified include molecular manufacturing systems able to construct computers smaller than living cells, devices able to repair cells, diamond-based structural materials, and additional molecular manufacturing systems.
