Nanotechnology Industry (a new one)

In this post I will like to make emphasis in this new nanotechnology industry, first of all what it is?, the wikipedia said "... refers broadly to a field of applied science and technology whose unifying theme is the control of matter on the atomic and molecular scale, normally 1 to 100 nanometers, and the fabrication of devices within that size range." [1] It is a very multidisciplinary field and the one that I like most is robotics. It came up in concepts by the end of the fifties (physicist Richard Feynman) and the term was coined in 1974 by Tokyo Science University Professor Norio Taniguchi. So this is another example how current modern technology was already in theory (papers) by the middle of the previous century (XX), and here come my opinion, the rich and developed countries are like that not because some God wanted is because they work hard, investigate, they are always trying new stuff, and of course those initiatives become industries and they make tons of money with that, I wonder why that is not a pattern in other countries (for example Peru)??. I found this '...by 2015 nanotechnology will play a crucial role in $1 trillion worth of products, "which would require two million workers." '[2], see what I mean, a lot of money and jobs will come for that XXI's product, and my prediction is that this industry will be as big as the Web, because it will be every where, we are going to use intelligent clothing it will turn warm if the weather is cold or the other way, we will have molecular robots inside our body fixing what ever they can and there are more and more examples. I read that now venture capitals are investing and that the platform for develop this XXI's product is already building, yes!!! another industry that will improve our life and of course is part of the knowledge economy. Do we want to see how this industry grows or do we want to be part of it??, I will like to develop software for those nano robots, what about you??.
