5 Futuristic and Mind Blowing Products Made of Nano-Materials

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.

Scientists Reveal Nanocell That Mimics Human Memory

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have developed nanocell technology that could restore the memories of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients. Professor of electrical and computer engineering Dmitri Strukov, lead researcher Mirko Prezioso, research assistant Farnood Merrikh-Bayat and researcher Gina Adam make up the research team.

The nano memory cell is estimated to be 10,000 times thinner than the width of a person’s hair strand. At this point of its development, the cell has the capability to store and process data simultaneously like a real brain cell. There are 100 different synapses that also are able to  perform image classification. In the near future, the cell will be expanded to act like the human brain.

According to writer Ellie Zolfagharifard for Dailymail.com, “in the latest demonstration, the circuit with artificial neural network was able to successfully classify three letters; ‘z’, ‘v’ and ‘n’. It analyzed the letter by their images, each letter stylized in different ways or saturated with ‘noise’ in a process similar to how we humans pick our friends out from a crowd.”

The cell is comprised of memristors that act like neurons and transmit electricity. These memristors were created in the 1970s by circuit theorist Leon Chua, and memristors are still vital to this type of research and innovation.

Writer Emma Tiller for the New Hampshire Voice believes “ethical issues involved in experimenting on the brain could be minimized by replicating a brain outside the body.”

The fascinating thing about this research is that millions of people can live a healthier and happier existence. Only time will tell if technology like this is feasible on a large scale.
