Nanotechnology in a spy movie

from the what-the-well-dressed-will-wear dept.
Gina Miller writes "In Review: 'Tuxedo' a nano showcase, UPI Science News's Scott R. Burnell describes the hype and the fact in a movie whose 'premise revolves around a set of jacket and pants whose fabric is computerized and packed with nanotech, capable of turning the most unassuming man-on-the-street into a super spy.'" "Burnell explores which of the suit's purported properties might make sense in terms of the properties of carbon nanotubes and in terms of the US Army-funded work at the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (see Nanodot Sept. 27, 2002 and April 8, 2002). But for the classic description of what a mature molecular manufacturing technology will make possible, see the spacesuit described in Space and Advanced Technology, in Chapter 6 of Engines of Creation."
