Nanotechnology: not just for geeks
Date:10/2/2007

WASHINGTON Say nanotechnology, and geeks imagine iPhones, laptops and flash drives. But more than 60 percent of the 580 products in a newly updated inventory of nanotechnology consumer products are such un-geeky items as tennis racquets, clothing, and health products.

Maintained by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at www.nanotechproject.org/consumerproducts, the updated inventory includes Head NanoTitanium Tennis Racquets, Eddie Bauer Water Shorts with Nano-Dry technology, Nano-In Foot Deodorant Powder/Spray, and Burts Bees sunscreen with natural Titanium Dioxide mineralmicronized into a nano sized particle.

The list includes merchandise from such well-known brands as Samsung, Chanel, Black & Decker, Wilson, L.L. Bean, Lancome and LOreal.
