    What are the possible threats of evolving nano technology?

    Some say that this new tech can become out of control and lead to doomsday!

    Nanotechnology is not only one of the future's most promising technologies but also one of the most dangerous. We still do not know enough about nanotechnology to foresee its effect on the balance of weapons of aggression versus weapons of defense. Yet it is curious to notice how offensive weapons--particularly nuclear weapons--have gained superiority over defensive weapons in the modern world's military balance, and we can expect nanotechnology to yield similar weapons of mass destruction.

    If any weapon of mass destruction gets into the wrong hands it will be a threat. It's not the technology that is a threat it's the people using them that are.
