Tiny Machines: The Feynman Lecture on Nanotechnology


Richard Feynman




Tiny Machines is the defining lecture on designing and engineering at the molecular scale. Richard Feynman describes computer chips, tiny tools, sound waves, and the known laws of physics. He teaches us about the science behind nanotechnology and how tiny machines and tools can be constructed atom-by-atom. Dr. Feynman enthusiastically illustrates the relationship art and science and tiny machines. This classic teaching of technology will amuse, entertain and inform. In 1959 Dr. Feynman addressed the American Physical Society with his classic talk "There's Plenty of Room at the Botttom". This historic lecture set the stage for the science we now know as nanotechnology. Twenty five years later, in 1984 he presented that lecture again as TINY MACHINES.
