Dr K Eric Drexler
founder and emeritus chair of the Foresight Institute, and inventor of the term 'nanotechnology'
Molecular machinery provides a way to accomplish atomic precision

Physical technology evolves towards limits set by physical law, and a technology approaching the limits set by physical law must build with atomic precision. Molecular machinery provides a way to accomplish this.

In today's biological cells and in future manufacturing, large molecular structures can fit together and work together, forming molecular machine systems. These machines can bring molecular fragments together under digital control, building a wide range of products - large and small - with atomic precision. Biology shows that this kind of production process can be clean and inexpensive.
