Updated: 3 March 2017
Our video team travelled to Japan’s annual nanotech convention in Tokyo.

What is nanotech?

Nanotechnology manipulates matter on a really, really small scale. It has great potential in a number of industries like agriculture and healthcare, where it can be used to diagnose conditions earlier and deliver vaccines via patches.

Nanotechnology can also be applied to materials to make them extremely strong. This tiny technology is going to be huge in the future.
