How Will Nanotechnology Revolutionize Medicine?

Remember when Inside the Magic Schoolbus shrank
down and flew into Arnold? Yeah, science is actually doing that. THE FUTURE IS NOW. Giant feats of engineering like space vehicles,
dams, skyscrapers and massive airplanes are complex, to be sure… but at least the engineers
working on them can SEE what they’re working on. Imagine engineering a pump which is only
a single molecule in size. Yeah. It’s REALLY HARD, but a team from Northwestern University
did it earlier this year. In nature, molecules are constantly moving
around in our bodies, transporting energy, oxygen, and even information from one place
to another; this molecular pump is a rudimentary synthetic copy of something nature does all
the time. This pump uses a dumbbell-shaped molecule, and a set of positively charged
molecular rings. Sort of like two magnets repelling each other, the rings provide tiny
amounts of energy that the synthetic molecule can use to make the pump ratchet at a predictable
rate! The problem with nanotechnology, has always been powering itty-bitty things; and
realizing they can harvest energy from nano-scale rings is enough is pretty huge… or… small…
I mean… They’re hoping if they can improve the tech and capture MORE rings they’d have
enough energy to power artificial muscles, or even whole nanomachines! The development of nanotechnology has been
steadily climbing over the last 40 years and with leaps like this, things are starting
to get crazy. In 2004, scientists at New York University created a nanobot that bipedally
“walks” on legs 10 nanometers long by adding a molecule called psoralen found in the seeds
of celery, parsley, citrus fruits and the common fig. A few years later, a study on
the future of nanomaterials said we’re only 10 to 20 years from a nanosized factory. This
psoralen molecule lets the nanobot “walk” along a DNA strand; the researchers envision
this as the beginnings of a nanobot conveyor belt for nanoassembly… think about the coolness
of a nano-sized car factory… assembling nanobots for any imaginable purpose. The NIH says nanocomputers and nanobots could
revolutionize the medical industry by creating nanobots which could mechanically reverse
plaque buildup in arteries, or prepare tissues for cryonic storage, repair spinal damage,
rewrite individual bases in our DNA, improve the efficiency of our cells, or map the complicated
connections of the mammalian brain. Things are moving real fast in this y’all.
In 1998, researchers (hypothetically) designed a red blood cell 200 times more efficient
than our own. It was, in essence, an atomic-sized oxygen tank that could fill up in the lungs
and distribute oxygen to the tissues way better than our own cells can. If that sounds far
fetched, take this for a spin. Papers in the journal ACS Nano and Physics Today (among
many others) from the last couple of years use what researchers are calling “DNA origami,”
to carry medication directly to cancer cells. DNA origami is essentially a nano-engineered
“barrel” that can carry drugs or information to a specific place, and release it! Nanotechnology is getting better and better
and better…You know what else is getting better? Toyota! Toyota has been doing some
tinkering of their own with the TRD line of Toyota Trucks. Enhanced to rule the off-road!

  1. As long as no government or terrorists get there hands on this tech it will be all good. But we know that is a far fetched dream. I will hope to enjoy this while it lasts.

  2. I hate medicine if the 1800's didn't use medicine by the time i was borned my immune system would have been stronger and i would of lived almost 200 years screw you medicine thanks to you ill die in my 90's i wish survival of the fittest still existed

  3. I can see people buying artificial red blood sells and using them to dive for longer periods of time… People getting cryogenically frozen… Black Market nanobots for organ tranpslant patients

  4. That could be scary I some ways making people better through engineering is a slippery slope it has to be available for all it we could end up with the torch super engendering and discriminating against those not engendered and this the poor. Be warned

  5. Yeah yeah guys, you know whats a very unfair deal? To watch merely a few seconds of adverts so that a bunch of people can actually live. I dont know about your place but food costs money and your hosts need to eat. If ten seconds of a harmless thing made you complain….

  6. 200X more efficient oxygen distribution = greater need for antioxidants, although not perfect we should work with biology more holistically considering long term systemic consequences.

  7. Its cool that we can barely amagion how tec might be in ten years cause its moving so fast when people in the 1950s predicted tec in 50 years decently accurate.

  8. Just to set the record straight, DNA origami is actually a general technique for folding DNA strands into arbitrary shapes, which has all sorts of applications beyond the one mentioned in the video. –a researcher in the field

  9. Hey, i was just wondering who writes the script for these videos? I have to evaluate my sources for a school assessment piece and i need to know the author of the source for one question.

  10. The civilized society is becoming addicted of the chemical medicine as of antidote for corrupted lifestyle that violates the natural processes and causes a disease in the first place, so we should better limit the usage of technology much as possible to restore a natural balance and instead continue growth by cultural development.

  11. I don't know what will do for us but I know what is doing know. Is infecting us with nazi nasa un morgellons, smart dust dropped from chemtrail planes and changing our dna, connecting to our neuron system and creatinng receivers so we can act like a fuking zombies with help of cell death towers. It is global holocoust and no one pays attention.

  12. One of the keys to my immortality. Nanobots, gene therapy, and a way to get agelessness.

  13. Maybe in the future; instead of going shopping for new clothes and suites, you can also shop for a whole new body made of nanites. All you gotta do is remove your nervous system and place it in a designer body 😗

  14. I would love to have tiny robots inside me. I've already had tiny lobsters, robots would be way cooler.

  15. or they could use them as replacement nerve endings for the spine or an advanced prosthetic I'm just speculating it's possible they could then cover the arm/prosthetic in a synthetic skin that protects the nanobots from outside forces that may cause them to malfunction like radio waves,magnets or stuff in general

  16. When Trace mentioned that you could map the brain through nanotech, I got really excited! The research that would come from that!


  18. I am sorry but I’m sooo excited about this! As soon as it becomes available I’m going to get these awesome medical robots in my body cuz sorry but I wanna be alive for 2500.

  19. Global Nanotechnology In Energy Applications Market Research Report 2018-2023

  20. Nanotechnology in medicine. I am really amazed on watching this. Good stuff to watch. To know more interesting facts on nanotechnology <>

  21. Not much will happen in 10 years. With government regulations it’s so expensive to fund any medical projects

  22. One of the differences between machines and lives is the latter's micro-structure.
    The next epoch-making , AI-centered techs will be able to solve the problems with sustainability , removing the barrier
    between artifacts and natural objects , being friendly to the natural ( including body-internal ) & social environments 💖.–article-history–blog–1–lovelucifer_12266020322

  23. If we are able to creat nanobots, it would pretty much change the world as we know it. It would grant immortality or at least grow our life expectancy from 75-85 years old, to 300+. It is crazy.

  24. The government doent want to cure anything with nanotechnology if they did they would make no money doctors wouldn't get payed

  25. Nanotechnology could potentially mean that humans could cure most diseases and even make body augumentations possible.

    I could create a nanotechnology that allows me to download information directly into my brain so that means I can learn pretty much anything really fast.

  26. Before you bitch about your upcoming extended life's and no more retirement human slaves if you get bored of living go jump in a fucking volcano or the sun I doubt anything we make can make your human truly indestructible maybe to the extent of you been a undying terminater the liquid one

  27. Nature has been making nanites for billions of years, they're bacteria, viruses, phages, prions and enzymes. We just need to learn how to modify them for our purposes. Granted, we can create novel versions of nanites but remember nature has had billions of years of development already.

  28. I want to work for nanotech because I want to figure out a way for organs to regenerate themselves and finding a way for eternal life

  29. I expect in feature human wearable brain memory chips. hope we could cross heart, DNA, body parts don't include diseases. brain chips takes you next level of humanoids

    balance is astral dimension to dreams concepts will break through nano sensors. nano sensors may enter 3rd or 4th dimension.

    take it easy maybe I'm funny.

  30. There have been molecular machines for billions of years: Bacteria are basically NanoMachines or NanoBots. We should learn how to control Bacteria and use them. Bacteria and other Microorganisms are awesome, they can produce almost any kind of proteins

  31. Nanotechnology should be used to cleanse stuck microscopic asbestos fibers from the inner human body this would prevent asbestos related cancers. Asbestos are solid dead stationary objects thus easy for nanorobots to latch onto and remove. Their's lots of asbestos around.

  32. ha ha ha , I never can predict that commercial at the end….. and neither this: (nanotechnology soon will rule this world)

  33. Your PHDs and your education from the ministry of miseducation mean nothing. I will tell you exactly how it will revolutionize medicine. It has already and always been here for decades, please be careful. They are using nanotechnology that is inside the body of everyone to poison, or administrate sleep, or negative drug effects. This leads to one blaming the other that he or she has poisoned them. This leads to the destruction of relationship's. I am giving you a message. It is very sneaky and deceptive. Very satanic. Remote neural monitoring. They are even doing auditory hallucination so you may think someone has said something about you at a distance, another room etc… I repeat please be aware, they are using satelite, electro magnetic waves, and even scalar waves, also nanobots that do covert drugging who are the culprits of many negative effects such as hollucinogenic, sleep patterns etc and Auditory hallucination, this then leads you to fighting with family members, as you then believe they have poisoned you or are talking about you from a distance. And fights start…Nanotechnology. Activate rot liver mode. Active rot teeth mode. Activate. Alzeimers mode. Activate poisoning mode.activate cancer mode. Activate. Hollucinogenic mode. (So that it's time to see your doctor, or take your "pill" or recharge) (money) or even experimental. or whatever form of control they might wanna create.dont think your deepstate government has your best interest at heart, democracy is a facade, capitalism is artificial, just look at the homeless. The world is going to the worst part. Becareful everyone. They can even manipulate anger inside you. Try to be conciouss of your feeling. Organized stalking. Gangstalking. Usaf. Government sponsored terrorism. NWO. Private sectors. Intelligence agencies. NSA

  34. "Nanotech" is a Company, and also "nano" is a size of something based on it's measurement, base 10 (1, 10, 100, 1000; 0; -1, -10, -100, -1000) similar to foriegn language size scales, including Greek, Roman, and many others.
