Nano News Is Good News

From CNETNews.com: MIT has won a contract to create nanotechnology for military use. The US Army made the announcement March 13. The Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies says that they plan to research ideas like "almost invisible" clothing that will solidify into a cast and a karate glove.

An ISN spokesman says in the story, "Imagine the psychological impact upon a foe when encountering squads of seemingly invincible warriors protected by armor and endowed with superhuman capabilities, such as the ability to leap over 20-foot walls."

Imagine the psychological impact on me, reading about something like that happening. COOL!

Who's behind all this? Playboy industrialist Tony Stark? They better put repulsor rays in those things, or I'm not interested.

I think America is great because our scientific minds are now getting all their ideas from comic books. Next: MIT to drop radioactive spiders on teenagers!
