NANOTECHNOLOGY

NEW-GEN is a futuristic utopia where human beings, alien creatures, and mechanical life forms co-exist in harmony. Built with nanotechnology by a scientist and explorer from Earth, NEW-GEN weaves nature and technology together into a sustainable paradise. But a nanotech war has erupted - begun by an exiled genius and now both NEW-GEN and Earth are threatened with annihilation.

Nanotecnology is already transforming out world. Microscopic machines manipulate matter, rearranging atoms to solve mankind's problems: 

 

Nanomedicine - Nanobots serve as a mechanical immune system, repairing, healing, and curing any illness, injury, or disease. 

Environmental repair - Nanobots scrubcarbon dioxide from the atmosphere, break down water pollutants, and provide oxygen via artificial photosynthesis.

Future bio-enhancement - Jump higher, run longer, adapt to new climate.
