Lots of nanotechnology in roadmap of the 21st century
Source: YouTube/pestip
 A video animation of Peter Pesti's compilation "Detailed Roadmap of the 21st Century" posted at the Georgia Tech website. Pesti's compilation is a year by year bullet point list of notable advances expected to happen in the 21st century, from 2006 onwards. There are quite a few nanotechnology relevant predictions in the list. Keep in mind what happened to this kind of predictions in the past ("flying cars" by 2001 etc.). Some are pretty far out, as might be expected from Kurzweil et. al., some are pretty realistic, especially the shorter term ones.

N is for nanotechnology
Source: Hewlett Packard
 A brief promotional video from Hewlett Packard that highlights a few examples of what nanotechnology is - everlasting lightbulbs, miniature cell phones, tiny computers and smart clothing.

Nano Hazard
Source: Sciencentral
 Tiny particles of silver designed to kill germs are being put into socks to control odor. But as this ScienCentral News video explains, what happens to that nanosilver later is concerning some scientists.

Nano: The next dimension
Source: Athena Web
 In this 27-minute film we are heading deep into the world of nanoscience, down to the dimension of an atom. We will find out what tools scientists have developed to explore this new reality, opening up an apparently infinite field of research and practical applications.

Nanofactory animation
 A nanofactory is ahighly futuristic proposed system in which nanomachines would combine molecules to build larger atomically precise parts. These, in turn, would be assembled by positioning mechanisms of assorted sizes to build macroscopic but still atomically-precise products.

 This 26 minute film on nanotechnology, aimed particularly at a young audience, seeks to both inform and raise interest in nanotechnology and research. It received a Prize from the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Physical Training in the category "film dealing with education" (unfortunately, to view it online requires a lengthy registration procedure).

Nanotechnology - age of convergence
Source: YouTube
 We are approaching an evolutionary event horizon, where the organic and the synthetic, the virtual and the "real", are merging together into an operational ecology, an existence morphology for which there is no precendent in the history of which we are currently aware, catalyzed by nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology takes off
Source: KQED
 A QUEST TV segment (air date: March 27, 2007). From Lawrence Berkeley National Labs to Silicon Valley, researchers are manipulating particles at the atomic level, ushering in potential cures for cancer, clothes that don't stain, and solar panels as thick as a sheet of paper.

Nanotechnology: Power of Small
Source: Power of Small
 'Nanotechnology: The Power of Small' is the first major television series to look at the implications of advances in nanotechnology. The series' three programs explore critical questions about nanotechnology's potential impact on privacy, the environment and human health: Will nanotechnology make you safer, or will it be used to track your every move? Will nanotechnology keep you young, and what happens if you live to be 150? Will nanotechnology help clean up the earth, or will it be the next asbestos?

Richard Feynman introduction to nanotechnology

 An introduction to nanotechnology, starting with Richrd Feynman's classic talk in December 1959 "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom - An Invitation to Enter a New Field of Physics."
