Small is, put simply, big. Ever-smaller electronic devices have revolutionized our lives, placing unprecedented computational power and communication abilities literally in the palm of our hands. But small is not over—another sea change is still to come. A different type of miniaturization, the miniaturization of machines, is only just getting underway. In this talk, I will discuss what’s coming, with an emphasis on strategies to construct these new micro and nano scale machines and how they might affect our lives.
