Speaking Of Radio Waves
Scientists have developed the worlds smallest radio.
It's a nano size radio about the size of a virus.
I remember hearing on my big radio (last week) that it is 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.
The first song played from it.
28 seconds of LAYLA by Eric Clapton.
You can actually hear it play on YouTube.
HOLY BAT EARS batman! Now that's tiny. Could give a whole new meaning to feeling bugy...
or a whole new threat to privacey.
Wow...I bet the billions of dollars that has been undoubtedly poured into developing this thing were well spent.:rolleyes:
I wonder if the electric car could have been perfected with that money or the Hydrogen powered vehicle? Or maybe we could be several steps closer to curing cancer or some other disease.
I'm trying to imagine what purpose this device may be used for. I am at a loss for one.
Maybe if someone invents a nano gun - all our concealement problems will be over :wink:
But - hmmmmm - two angstroms as a caliber?
Nope - not gonna cut it!
Nano technology is going to change things like you cant imagine.
Think of it, a GPS,cellphone,walkie talkie,calculater and computer with interent access and time piece all in something the size of a watch.
How about bullet tags? Every bullet gets an itty bitty tag that can be detected with a microscope.Or a GPS transponder located in every gun sold after a certain date.
I predict, that in the next 25 years, there will be no such thing as "privacy". It will be an old outdated concept and the word wont even be in the dictionary in the furture.
It is not quite a radio they are using a nano tube as a detector/demodulator kind of like a high frequency (1 geg/hz) crystal radio.
yea.. i dont think shooting ONE ATOM and someone will hurt much :gah:

DrLewall - That's funny but, so true.
Nano technology is going to change the world in an incredible way.
Changing altering & modifying the properties of all matter on an atomic level.
I'm just curious about it but, sure don't understand it.
I understand it just enough to know that it's going to impact absolutely everything once they get bugs worked out it.
I understand it just enough to have confidence that someone will always be trying to ABUSE it for corrupt purposes or personal gain... and that someone will always be trying to use it beyond his ability to control it, and it will cause hideous problems down the road.
Mankind has always demonstrated itself to be far more curious than wise. When you start messing with stuff like nanotechnology, and you are as immature a species as we are, you are asking for trouble.
Look at the house of cards we've built on the internet. So much commerce and other information transfer is done on a system so incredibly vulnerable to pernicious attack... It was stupid for us to rush to put all of our eggs in this basket, at a time when we are always chasing to catch up to new ways to scam the system, steal identities and information, etc.
Hmmm...I wonder how they plug in the speaker jacks?
<heh heh heh>
It's the nature of our beast. It always has been and always will be. It's reality. Still we continue to advance. We are the unstoppable human machine.
How do you select stations?
So if I buy one of these things, how do I know they put it in the bag? And how do you turn it on? I'm sort a basic kinda guy, and easy to confuse..
