NY Times reports on Nanotube 2002

from the better-living-through-nanotubes dept.
RobertBradbury writes "The NY Times (registration required) is reporting here on "Nanotube 2002". No reported breakthroughs on synthesis yet, but a nice description of the various capabilities of nanotubes and some novel applications for which they might be used, particularly MEMS scale microgears. But if Tim Harper is correct, and there really are 40 nanotube companies now [ref], then one has to wonder if the nanotube industry isn't going to have some of the same problems that some segments of the dot-com industry did?"
