Matt Scullin from Berkeley's Material Science Lab explains how humankind is often defined by the materials it uses. He argues that as we enter the Nano age, there will be a fundamental shift in the way we think about materials. In the future, self-assembly will allow designers to make the shapes they want from the atomic level rather than whittle down existing materials like we have in the Stone, Bronze, Iron and Silicon ages.
