Nanotech Helps Blind Hamsters See

I don't entirely agree that this should be considered nanotechnology per se, but scientists have succeeded in regenerating severed nerve tissue in hamsters. This bodes very well for future treatments for neurological damage resulting from aging, stroke, or injury. :-)

I saw this article last week on a women's health feed, and they used 'Nanotech' in the headline. I was pleasantly surprised (both by the study, and by 'Nanotech' making it to the Village).

And while it doesn't sound like they're actually using nanoparticles to do the work, but rather manipulating at an atomic level... it it kinda nice to see the word nanotech getting out into the mainstream in positive, non-threatning ways. Perhaps when news of nanobots really does start breaking out of the lab, it will have a more positive association for bioLuddites as a result.
