    Tiny but full of promises (last episode): the prospects of nanotechnology in automotive

    While nanocars (single-molecule vehicle of hundreds atoms that incorporates a chassis, axles and freely rotating fullurene wheels and can be propelled across a gold surface by an electric current or heat) were invented in 2005 by Rice University, nano-enhanced cars are already among us! The current automotive industry’s driving factors are to decrease vehicles fuel […]
