NANO Supermarket

3rd November 2010

Nano technology is a word that we are used to hearing, but as an emerging technology it is one that we know relatively little about apart from the fact that it is too small to see.

Nano technology is an important emerging technology that will impact our food, our clothing and generally our lives.

During Dutch Design week The NANO Supermarketpresented a series of concepts for future products that use an understanding of Nano technologies for within the next 10 years.

The Philips Food probes printer and E-chromi were shown there alongside other thought provoking products such as twitter implants or Nano Lift.

Nano Lift - is a Physical Photoshop that allows you to change your face on a daily basis using cosmetic implants containing nano magnetic particles.

Skinpaper is a concept that considers current developments in nanotechnology and blends it with the idea of paper as a dying medium. The paper like scaffold acts to support skin cell growth in a notebook that acts as a placeholder of the skin cells of the owner. Essentially offering up a biological snapshot offering a vision of a biotech future.

These and other concepts that were on show offer an interesting take on our nano and biotech future.
