One of those stops was at General Electric's Global Research headquarters in this upstate New York town. There, he was given a full day's tour and a look at some of the technologies the industrial giant is working on and which could see the light of day in the next few years.
Terdiman's tour covered a wide range of technologies and disciplines, including GE's thoughts on how to incorporate nanotechnology into bother materials science and aviation.
Seen here is an experiment that demonstrates the unusual behavior of particles at the nano scale. This is what happens when a magnet is applied to a liquid made from nano-scale iron oxide shavings.
