A bizarre "nano" water-resistant coating is so effective that weird surface tension effects prevail.

Holy crap. Has anybody actually used this stuff? Does it do everything it's supposed to do? It's called "Ultra Ever Dry," and it's marketed as a nano polymer with hydrophobic (water-repelling — literally "water fearing") and oleophobic (oil-repellant) properties. Show More Summary
British soldiers in Afghanistan have been issued several drones known as Black Hornet Nanos, palm-sized unmanned aerial vehicles “that can scout around corners and obstacles for hidden dangers” and transmit live video and still images...Show More Summary
A simple technique uses silica to coat a living cell both inside and outside. The process forms a near-perfect replica of the cell's structure, down to the tiniest organelle. The resulting model, heated, creates nature-sculpted nanotools with components far stronger than when built out of flesh.
Today, Zotac updated its ZBox nano XS series with a new model, the ZBox nano XS AD13. The PC comes with an AMD Radeon HD 7340 video card, a AMD E2-1800 APU (dual-core, 1.7 GHz), 2 GB of DDR3 memory,...
Small, local breweries are trendy, but in many places, starting one can involve a lot of red tape, thanks in part to Prohibition-era liquor laws. New Hampshire is the first state to try to change that. But is the "nano" model really sustainable?

Tiny cars are widely seen, to some degree, as the vehicle of the future. MIT is actively developing Hiriko, a “city car” that fits one person and folds up when not in use, and the Tata Nano is popular for being cheap, even if the lack of airbags means it’ll never be sold in the US.

For the first time, scientists have created single layers of a naturally occurring rare mineral called tungstenite, which they have used to produce a sheet of stacked sulfur and tungsten atoms with unusual photoluminescent properties and with potential for use in optical technologies such as light detectors and lasers.
