Released: Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems

As Eric Drexler puts it:

I’m pleased to report that the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems has finally been released. This marks the completion of the first broad, multidisciplinary effort to explore how current laboratory techniques for atomically precise fabrication can be extended, step by step, toward increasingly advanced products and capabilities.

The roadmap specifies the time until macro scale atomically precise productive nanosystem (APPN) arrays will appear to be in the 15-30+ year time frame.

Some terms from the documents:

  • APT = atomically precise technologies
  • APM = atomically precise manufacturing
  • APPN = atomically precise productive nanosystems
