Breaking down Nano Technology
We’ve been really excited about nanotechnology, since introducing Mr Nano. It’s fascinating and mind boggling when you think of what scientists have been able to achieve. There was a time where what the eye could see was all we knew…… but then, through research and invention, we learned of the microscope. This instrument enabled us to view objects that were too small to be seen by the naked eye. Microscopes, over time, became highly powered and varied. You can obtain magnifications of an image from 1,500 times to 1 million times, and even see surface features on the atomic scale!
It all gets pretty complicated and, I’m no scientist, but all we need to know is that ‘Nano’ means something is smaller than microscopic, actually one billionth of a unit, and Mr Nano has been created with this technology.
If I can use an analogy of butter! You can take a block of butter and slice it into slabs, then you can use the knife to slice it into cubes, then you can grab a fork and mash it into mush, then you can put the mush into a blender and blend it into cream and so forth. You would be breaking the butter down. Mr Nano has been created by breaking small particles into even smaller particles. These tiny particles are now called Nano particle
