Experimenting with Nanotech can be dangerous

Written by Nick Farell

Terror group launches attacks
While it is being touted as the next big thing for technology, Nanotech does not appear to have the support of everyone. In Mexico City an anti-technology group calling itself "Individuals Tending to Savagery" claimed it was responsible for a package bomb that injured two university professors just outside Mexico City.

Two boffins were injured outside Monterrey Technological Institute's campus in the State of Mexico on the outskirts of the capital. One of the boffins was involved in robotics research. Mexico State Attorney General Alfredo Castillo said at a news conference that the group's involvement was identified from a partially destroyed note found at the scene. The group opposes experiments with nanotechnology and has staged attacks on academics before.  It has been linked to attacks in several different countries of Europe, including Spain and France.

The target was professor Oscar Camacho who is doing research on "micro-electro-mechanical systems." His academic background includes computer and electronic engineering. Nothing that would get him laid at a Christmas party, but suddenly sounds more dangerous than being James Bond.

Experimenting with guns and explosives IS dangerous but everyone do it.

You guys must not know about Skynet :D

The only thing I could think of is people having something against technology used for warfare OR they can profit from the attack somehow. The same research might be going on elsewhere and they want to delay results. Money makes the world go-round or something like that.

It's all about religion. Since ever people has identified Science as something opposed to religion coz science is based on knowledge and religion... Well you know what I mean.

This attack either was related to Jesus or Allah IMHO!

Anything has its positives and its negatives so nanotechnology might be used in the future to repair our damages from an injury. For example you are been hit by a car, if you have nanorobots in your body they can fix the damages and you will not die, but think the other way around..some people want to heart you.. they release some nanorobots you inheil them from the air and they kill you.

Way out of the box thinking but both senarios can be done in the near future, so any technology have its pros and cons.

MAYBE... They came from the FUTURE to put a stop to the inevitable nano-robot overlords!

Why in the hell else would anyone try to put a stop to technology!?

Well people are afraid of stuff they dont understand , but some stuff about science is waaay to stupid... like do you think that monkey could build PCs, smartphones and similar high tech, i say anyone think thats truth is idiot
