Nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and genetic editing will merge to form a new synthetic technology platform, producing hoards of nanobots, each no larger than a dust particle but with emergent intelligence. Like swarms of insects, these will work in a networked matrix, remotely controlled like a drone until they begin to act as autonomous agents. They can be inhaled and they can penetrate buildings.

The word pendulum can refer to the swinging part of a clock that acts to maintain and regulate movement. But the origin of the word comes from the latin, pendulus, hanging down. Our own gross (large) organs are concentrated in our chest, thorax, neck and head, and our appendages are largely composed of skeletal, muscular, adipose tissue, nerve, skin, etc. In the future, scientists will likely explore the implantation of sensory organs in our appendages to enhance our sensorial capacity. This will be especially useful in military applications.
