1 Tiny Technologies Club Club Goals Planned Events and Activities Club Organization Overview of MIT Tiny Tech Research v

2 Goals Education -- Advance understanding of emerging micro-through-nanoscale Tiny Technologies Networking -- To build links between interested science, engineering, and business communities at & beyond the Institute Entrepreneurship – To accelerate new venture creation & technology commercialization

3 Events & Activities Special Events –VCPI Panel –$50K Teambuilding Facilities Visits / Lab Tours –Corporate – e.g. Intellisense –MIT / Harvard Labs -- 11/5 Center for BioMaterials Educational Overview Talks –Sloan Lunch Talks NanoStructures Technology Talks –MIT & Visiting science & engineering faculty

4 Organization Event-Focused Teams –E.g. Speaker Series –E.g. Labtours Champions each spearhead initiatives A Few Critical Functional Roles –PR & Marketing –Fundraising & Sponsorship

5 Contacts Sloan Speakers Series – Luke Burns NanoStructures Series – Jose Pacheco Labtours – Tienko Rasker TinyTech Ventures & Cross-Campus Connections – Joost Bonsen Fundraising – Ellen Brockley

6 Tiny MIT The Speculative Possibilities Labs & Researchers at MIT The Money Business Implications Further Sources

7 Tiny = ? Micro through Nano in size / length scale MEMS, NEMS, PEMS, Molectronics, Spintronics, Photonics, optoelectronics… Nano + tubes, wires, crystals, balls, logic, rods, gears, engines… Molecular Engineering, Biological Engineering…

8 Feynman’s Vision There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom! Dec 1959 Talk at APS / CalTech

9 Drexler’s Engine’s of Creation Book while at MIT Dismissed often as “Pure SF”

47 Dangers of Over-Hype Like AI in 80’s Some things are fundamentally hard Progress is rather bursty

48 MIT Sources MIT’s David Ward has a Nanotech pointer site, very good: The MIT Alum Association openDOOR February edition was on Tiny Technologies, very nice, very comprehensive: MIT’s Technology Review does a stellar job of covering ever smaller-scale Engineering:

49 Commercial Sources Nanotech Planet –http://www.nanotech-planet.com/http://www.nanotech-planet.com/ Zyvex has a comprehensive Nano site –http://www.zyvex.com/nano/http://www.zyvex.com/nano/ ACRS NanoTech –http://cr.org/http://cr.org/
