i might have misspelled it but according to the timeline by the 2070's atom size bots will start being available. 

much more smaller than nanobots. these new bots will be able to changer matter. 

what does this mean what could we invent with this tech.

What is it: Magic
What will it do: Magic

Actually, you can't do much with an individual atom. Atomic nuclei however can potentially do some really cool stuff, but that's femtotechnology.


What difference does it make?

probably picotech rather than picro as pico is smaller than nano

yer but what can picotech do that nanotech can't in the timeline it said it can create new forms of matter.

so what will this do will we be able to create new elements by the 2070's and pretty much change the laws of physics.

I don't know the topic very well, but I imagine atom-scale manufacturing techniques would create more powerful and efficient computers. Manipulating individual atoms ought to be useful for new-age computer designs like quantums. It might allow us to alter the inner workings of cells at an unprecedented precision. IBM has been able to spell out its logo using individual atoms

Spoiler
and efficient and large-scale manipulation of atoms could create new forms of communications technologies, storage techs etc. It could be used to create new metamaterials for various applications that include but are not confined to bending the EM spectrum. Perhaps it will allow us to create molecules by combining individual atoms, without having to go through complex chemical reactions to get to the end product. I don't know if that's possible or not.

 

It would also allow perfect-quality construction materials, I presume. If we were to build a space elevator at some point in the future, this technology could ensure that there were no imperfections in the strands of carbon nanotubes or graphene ribbons.

yer i just saw them saying we could change matter and create it. 

so i was just curious on what they meant because if you could control matter then you are basically a god

When Oppenheimer witness the first test of the atomic bomb he wrote in his journal, "I have become death". When this technology is realized it will seem a bit like the use of it is god like. The reality is that it will be just the next step in understanding the world we live in. We are already learning to manipulate individual atoms to a small extent but there will be a whole new set of rules that limit how powerful this technology can become. For example the energy required to scale up atomic scale operations  may rise exponentially making its use beyond a certain scale unfeasible.

Actually, no, hold up. I confused picotech with femtotech.
Pico is okay, but the real magic starts down at the femtoscale.

1. perfect replicators. which means, real scarcity of any known materials will truly be obsolete.

 

2. kill people swiftly before pain can even reach their the brain and leave no traces of evidence of the dead corpse whatsoever.

Alchemy perhaps? Could be done by adding or removing protons, neutrons, and electrons, which seems to be what picotechnology is. Yeah, I know we can already do thisi, but it's primitive and uneconomical. Also, maybe making new types of exotic atoms.

Again, that's femtotechnology. You'd need to be able to move protons to be able to achieve techno alchemy. That's femto scale engineering. Pico scale would be moving individual atoms, but not necessarily their individual parts. I mean technically you can do it; we're already messing with picoscale engineering with nanotech but it's inefficient at the moment.

Everything you can imagine, theroetically. For the next years though, we don't even know if Drexler nanomachines will be in the realm of fantasy or reality (due to issues created by atomic forces) so, well, this is really vague. We could reach picotechnology by 2070 or never reach it at all.

Thermodynamics dictates that we can't create nanomachines.

Despite this, there are nanomachines all around us, though we tend to call them viruses, bacteria, and cells. Also, we've developed nanomotors and nanoengines  of various efficiencies and nanostructures. To be perfectly honest, it's all really a matter of creating a shell and nanocomputers because we've already developed all the parts.

Are you sure of what you say? Which law of thermodynamics would oppose nanomachines?

Traditional engineering techniques tend to be effected to an increasing degree by the affects describe in the laws of thermodynamics as the machine decreases in size. As for those comparing any future technology to magic, a magicians tricks become slightly less magical if you know how it is done. For those who have been comparing it to alchemy I remind them that we have been able to turn lead in to gold for 3/4 of a century now.

Still, it is nowhere near as bad as conservapedia. But maybe I just think that because I'm not conservative...

 

BTW, I found an old thread discussing attotechnology ( http://www.futuretim...ogy-and-beyond/ ). I'm skeptical; I think an attometer is smaller than any known particle so there'd be nothing to manipulate.

^^ If we find a way to manipulate energy itself, then attoscale engineering may be possible.

Attoscale engineering will make Merlin look like an amateur alchemist.
