Quote of the day

Dr Andy Miah, a British bioethicist, believes there is now a new frontier in sporting technology, driven by the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science.

"We can imagine nanotechnological devices being utilised by athletes to keep them fit...these are molecular-sized devices that could be inserted into the brain to elicit certain kinds of physiological modifications." The technique has already been used to implant molecular-sized devices into the brains of people suffering from Parkinson's disease.
