The computer that vanished

The cost of nanoengineering will greatly decrease in the upcoming years. It used to be a very time consuming and expensive process, where a scientist had to build things atom for atom. But not any more. Pre-programmed viruses will assemble the very atoms required to make computer components. All powered by a solution of nutritients and elements required to build these nanomaterials. Nanomachines will assemble these computers. They will even assemble new nanomachines. The result will be fully functional computers, small enough to be voven as fibres into clothes or mixed with any liquid.
All these nanocomputers will be networked and share their computing power with the entire world. The interface to use this processing power can be a surface covered with light-emitting nanomachines, nanomachines in your retina or even nanomachines directly connected to your brain cells.
Anyone will be able to tap into a omnipresent network of processing power. We could process vast information just by thinking, we'd be able to design the most complex things at the blink of an eye. And we'll unlock secrets of science we'd never though possible. With the upcoming revolution in computers, the future of the mankind could even take one of two distinct turns. A utopian future where mankind shapes theirselves and their lives in any way they wish. And a dystopian one where a evil superpower controls everything and not even your thought is free.
We have to decide what our future will bear now, before it's too late. If we continue to let our lives in the hands of a few elite people, they could very well be the ones in charge of that dystopian future. But if we put the power back in our own hands, the computer revolution will lead to a utopia even better than you can imagine with your meat err brain now.
