Nanotechnology in Tennis Racquets
There is a very interesting article in this week's Business Week, whose cover story is on nanotechnology.
Throughout 2005, companies large and small will be rushing more nano-based products from labs to the marketplace. Consumers will encounter nanotechnology in the form of nick-proof trims on Hummers, Wilson tennis racquets with extra pop, even golf balls designed to fly straight.
In fact, "Nano-size silicon dioxide crystals help power this Wilson nSixOne tennis racquet."
So...Head is using piezoelectric technology, and now Wilson is using nanotechnology. Who would have ever thought, back when you were trying to keep your wooden racquet from warping in a press that they would now be made of materials that are engineered to thelevel of individual atoms!
Read the whole article in the 2/14/05 issue of Business Week.
