Nanotechnology is the answer

Justin Hall-Tipping is all about big ideas.

Why be limited to what we think is "normal"? Look back in history and you clearly see what people thought of as normal 100 years ago, is certaily not the same as now. In the 1850s it was common to travel by horse - cars were just a crazy idea - but pretty normal now!

This has led Justin Hall-Tipping on a journey to find ways to make big chages, and funnily enough, he's found the answer in the smallest of things... nanotechnology.

Watch this video and hear some wonderful future clean energy technology ideas in the world of nanotechnology:

  • Windows that can control how much heat is let in - making air conditioning unnecessary!!
  • Buildings covered in energy generating materials
  • Glasses to help us see in the dark and reduce the need for artificial lighting!

Very cool!
