Summary
"Soft Machines explains why the nanoworld is so different to the macroworld which we are all familiar with, why nature engineers things in the way it does and how we can learn to use these unfamiliar principles to create valuable new materials and artefacts which will have a profound effect on medicine, electronics, energy and the environment in the next century. With a firmer understanding of the likely relationship between nanotechnology and nature itself, we can gain a much clearer notion of potential dangers posed by this powerful technology, as well as come to realise that nanotechnology will have more in common with biology than with conventional engineering."--BOOK JACKET
