For those of us who can’t get enough nanotechnology info, now there’s a one-hour radio show/podcast every week to download and enjoy while you drive or work out, hosted by industry analyst Marlene Bourne:
“Next-generation science and technology, and the cool products that are being developed as a result, are captivating subjects,” said Ms. Bourne. “Each week we’ll explore how and why nanotechnology and MEMS are making a difference and what that means to each of us on a personal level.”
The first show, airing December 2nd, will provide an introduction to nanotechnology, engage listeners in a fun quiz to test their “Nano IQ,” and also reveal the Bourne Report’s second annual list of the “Ten Coolest Consumer Products from 2007.” These products are chosen for their innovative use of nanotech, MEMS and other next-generation technologies.
The focus is on current technologies already on the market, so if you’re looking for atomically-precise manufacturing R&D, this is not the place.
It’s probably a good thing that the show also covers MEMS and other emerging tech — that way they won’t be forced to cover only nanotech even when it’s a slow nano week. —Christine
