If you are a proud owner of a flagship smartphone produced in the last year (Samsung Galaxy S6, iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, LG G4, HTC One M9 and so on), you’ve meet the term “nano”. As in, your phone uses Nano SIM card.

Nanotechnology is not something new. In fact, it has been around for more than 200 years, when John Dalton, an English chemist proposed the scientific theory of the atom. Since then, scientists have tried to maximize the benefit of nano technology.

What is nano technology in essence? In its essence, nano technology strives to shrink objects in size. For example, your Nano SIM card is a lot smaller than a Micro or Mini SIM card. That allows the company to use the extra size for other technologies, or reduce the size/width/height of the smartphone. In computers industry, using nano technology has allowed companies to increase the processing power of computers by placing multiple processors instead of one inside.

The question now is whether there will be something smaller than nano technology? How has nano technology changed our world? The nano technology documentary takes a look at some numbers and comparison between nano technology and other technologies. And at the end, you ask yourself the question is there something better than nano technology? Does the military has something else in its sleeves?
