K. Eric Drexler is the founding father of nanotechnology—thescience of engineering on a molecular level. In Radical Abundance, he shows how rapid scientific progress is aboutto change our world. Thanks to atomically precise manufacturing, we will soonhave the power to produce radically more of what people want and at a lowercost. The result will shake the very foundations of our economy andenvironment. Already, scientists have constructed prototypes for circuitboards built of millions of precisely arranged atoms. The advent of this kindof atomic precision promises to change the way we make things—cleanly,inexpensively, and on a global scale. It allows us to imagine a world wheresolar arrays cost no more than cardboard and aluminum foil, and laptops costabout the same. A provocative tour of cutting edge science and itsimplications by the field’s founder and master, Radical Abundance offers a mind-expanding vision of a worldhurtling toward an unexpected future.
