The Birth of Beiton Nanotech
Updated: Dec 20, 2020
The world's leading scientists and engineers just made a breakthrough in producing the first programmable nanorobot particles that's practical for average citizen's daily use. These are sand-like nano robots that can be programmed into taking the shape and functionality of any object. At the International Emerging Technology Conference, Dr. Robert Hamlyn, the lead developer/presenter used a device to scan an ordinary chair, immediately after, a pile of black-sand poured out of a container and transformed into a chair that looked identical to the sample chair. The chair even had the same texture and finishes. Dr. Hamlyn announced the name of his product: Beiton (BAY-ton)
Dr. Robert Hamlyn's Vision:
In Robert's presentation, he envisioned that not long from the future, Beiton would be in everyone's daily life. Average citizens could easily communicate to the Beiton Central Server to render real-life common static objects. People would not need to carry large personal belongings with them any more. They can render almost any object imaginable on command. As long as the Beiton Server had the subject in its database, the possibilities would be only limited by the size of the object. Each user could buy more or less Beitons based on the individual's affordability and needs. Someone who spends more money would have the capability to form large and complex objects and vice versa. The server would have all common objects in its database. To execute a "render," the user only needs to request the desired object and its render location, the Server would render the object with its proper functions. If the Server didn't have a blue print of the object in its database, the user would have the ability to design and fabricate the object on the Beiton Server's Drawing Board. The skill to make good use of the design feature of the Beiton Server's Drawing Board to render novel objects was hard to learn and master. Therefore, this skill was highly sought-after in many different industries.
Legislation, Regulations and Oversight:
Because this technology was very dangerous when used inappropriately, the government and many organizations immediately stopped Dr. Hamlyn's research. Robert's team had to make multiple open testimonies to congress and agreed to much external oversight in order to carry the research forward. Policymakers wanted to have the proper regulations in place before Beiton becoming a successful product. The government had formed a Nano Technology Committee and implemented a series of laws against using the technology to render unauthorized items, which includes all weapons imaginable. Each Beiton shall come with a serial number system that can track its locations and activities at all time.
There was another serious problem with nano technology. Although they weren’t small enough to penetrate human skin, these dust-like robots could easily be programmed to penetrate larger orifices on any living organism. It was extremely difficult to safeguard the threat in this aspect. The Committee gave Robert Hamlyn a 3-month deadline to propose a feasible solution before they permanently outlaw and shut down not just his research, but all nano tech related research. Unable to develop a 100% bullet proof controller that can stop Beiton from potentially killing people, at the last minute, out of desperation, Robert proposed his partner Kaipo’s idea: design a Beiton to form a human auto-defense system and give it to every person. The amount of resources required for this project based on the current cost of producing one Beiton was unobtainable. Robert got another deadline, he convinced the policy makers giving him 24 month to develop the first prototype of a cheap Beiton that can be mass produced and safely distributed to the first human trial group. This new type of Beiton would function as human’s second immune system that could defend against foreign nano robots. Robert had to stop everything his research team was doing and directed the team to focus on developing this technology. This time, Robert’s team beat the deadline and brought forth a robust implementation plan of the Second Immune Systems (SIS) and a working prototype. It took every stakeholder working together and 1 years to implement this technology in a volunteer test group. This trial program was a huge success. Another 2 years had passed, after seeing SIS at work along with other added benefits, the public had gained significant confidence in Robert’s research again. The reason is simple, basically now every person with his/her SIS activated was like having a personal shield. SIS also could defend person from having other harmful foreign materials entering a body as well, ironically it was functioning more like a person's new primary immune system, which overall, made the person safer and healthier. There had been zero negative story on the SIS. Many people wanted to be placed into the trial program and experience the new product. After another 5 years, most population concentrated regions have implemented the SIS. Regions that did not implement the SIS, the presence of programmable matter and nano technology was strictly outlawed.
