Default Nano Technology

Machines measured in Microns.

One micron is 0.000039 of an inch or one millionth of a meter.

A human hair is 40 to 120 microns in diameter.

Here is a picture of the world's smallest functioning steam engine. Piston is 5 microns across.

Amazing those machines, seen a few of the nanobots that are for medical purposes and in the future they will aid in repairing us quicker.
