Of course, as with most science, it's not quite that simple, but at some level, the particles that make up the wood are, in fact, in motion.  So when we think about nanotechnology, it's the scale that's magical. It's still an observation and application of existing science and technology, chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering. But it's all very, very, very  small.  How small? From nano.gov: "It's hard to imagine just how small nanotechnology is. One nanometer is a billionth of a meter, or  10 -9  of a meter. Here are a few illustrative examples:  - There are 25,400,000 nanometers in an inch  - A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometers thick  - On a comparative scale, if a marble w
