Players are challenged in imaginative environments that promote learning about the operation of nanoelectronics, building and functionalizing molcules, nanoscale imaging, bottom up self assembly, and nanomedicine.
The game’s plot is to save the world from destruction by Dr.Nevil and his army of nano-machines and nano-materials, whilst the player stealthily learns about real world nanotechnology. The game hero (player) supported by Dr. Goodlove and his assistants use nano-imaging, create nano-machines, develop nano-materials, and utilise an extraordinary shrinking machine to shrink the player to the nanoscale to stop Dr. Nevil and save the world.
The game will be played through Nine challenges covering the following scientific concepts:
Nano Medicine: How nanotechnology can be used to help fight disease Available now as a playable demo.
Nano Scale : What the nano scale is like from a first person point of view & how it differs from normal scale.
Nano Imaging: Imaging at nano scale. Use of atomic force microscope, electron microscopes and scanning tunnelling microscope.
Nano Manipulations: Modifying and manipulating atoms inside nano structures.
Nano Electronics: How nanotechnology is used in electronics.
Nano Machines: Devices created from atoms. Nano robots, nano sensors, nano motors, nano drug delivery systems, nano manipulators.
Self-Assembly: Understanding self-assembly in the nanoworld.
Quantum Theory and Quantum Computing : How objects behave at quantum level, wave particle duality, uncertainty principles, applications in quantum computing.
Nano Materials : How tho create them and what are their properties.
