A big, big boost for nano-tech

ACCORDING TO THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, David Grier, a scientist at New York University, has developed a laser technology called holographic video microscopy. Jesse Emspak's article calls it "NYU’s real-life tricorder

Why should you care? Well, it appears Dave's little invention is the ideal tool for farkling at the nano-scale, and it's relatively inexpensive, compared to lots of other equipment. This means more people getting into nano-tech, and more developments, sooner.
