Availability: Ready to download

"Some seminal works stand out like beacons in the history of science. Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica and Watson and Crick's A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid come quickly to mind. In recent decades we can add Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation, which established the revolutionary new field of nanotechnology.

Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica and Watson and Crick's A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid come quickly to mind. In recent decades we can add Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation, which established the revolutionary new field of nanotechnology. In the twenty years since this seminal work was published, its premises and analyses have been confirmed and we are starting to apply precise molecular assembly to a wide variety of early applications from blood cell sized devices that can target cancer cells to a new generation of efficient solar panels. We can now see clearly the roadmap over the next couple of decades to the full realization of Drexler's concept of the inexpensive assembly of macro objects constructed at the nanoscale controlled by massively parallel information processes, the fulfillment of which will enable us to solve problems — energy, environmental degradation, poverty, and disease to name a few — that have plagued humankind for eons." — Ray Kurzweil, inventor, and author of The Singularity is Near, When Humans Transcend Biology Originally published in 1986, K. Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation laid the theoretical foundation for the modern field of nanotechnology and articulated the amazing possibilities and dangers associated with engineering at the molecular scale. Unique for both its style and substance, the book is today recognized as the seminal work in nanotechnology and has earned Drexler the title of "Father of Nanotechnology." Engines of Creation 2.0: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology — Updated and Expanded, is an ebook-only version available for free to readers exclusively through WOWIO. In addition to an updated "look and feel" for the ebook, Engines of Creation 2.0 has been expanded to include the first known lecture on nanotechnology by physicist Richard Feynman, the landmark open letter debate between Dr. Drexler and the late nanotech pioneer and Nobel laureate Dr. Richard Smalley, analysis of the debate by Ray Kurzweil, and a number of new additions by Dr. Drexler, including his advice to aspiring nanotechnologists.

    Fascinating. An complementary work is "Productive Nanosystems - A Technology Roadmap" to which Drexler contributed as a member of the Technical Leadership team http://www.productivenanosystems.com/...

    Getting a little dated for an MSE student, but hey. No one in my department seemed that interested or excited in what they did, so go Eric!

    Boring and vague. I don't think I learned a lot from it.
