Nano technology is becoming more useful every day. The tech has been used in medicine, construction and even fashion. There is an increasing demand for nano-materials that will help produce new tech that could change people’s lives for the better. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, “nano-sized particles exist in nature and can be created from a variety of products, such as carbon or minerals like silver, but nano-materials by definition must have at least one dimension that is less than approximately 100 nanometers. Most nano-scale materials are too small to be seen with the naked eye — even with conventional lab microscopes.” These materials can help improve other organisms in the long run.
In recent years, researchers have created nano-needles that act the same way larger needles do on lab mice. The tiny needles stay inside the body and then over a short period, they began to bio-degrade. This type of tech will be used to help burn victims with skin treatment, organ transplants and cell regeneration.
