Nano technology is rapidly maturing. Its latest application will have a profound impact on the graphic arts.
Nanorhythm technology is set to revolutionise the publishing industry. Borrowing ideas from social media and antisocial media, nanorhythmic tools could be in consumers’ hands within months.
Nanorhythms are minute waves that can modulate any type of material or immaterial substance. As a communications tool they are unprecedented because they create concepts and understandings which can be communicated via any media including bionic and metallurgical instruments.
The secret to nanorhythmic tools is in their minuteness and their ability to transmogrify into any form required of the communication itself or of the channel. Nanorhythms can be incorporated into any substance, including inkjet inks, an ability which gives the technology immense scope. Invented at the Cowpool-Slurry Institute of Very Small Things in Geneva, devices containing nanorhythmic technologies are expected to be introduced at drupa, although developers are reluctant to confirm how their devices, including digital presses and raster image processors, are exploiting them. The use of nanorhythmic technology in the drupa song has been dismissed as either a minute error or even a tiny rumour, despite evidence of nanorythms in the songs modulations and pitch variances.
Early nanorhythm prototypes are currently in beta testing and it is expected that nanorhythms will feature in the Eurovision Song Contest as well as the drupa song. It has been purported that flaws in the nanorhythms could be responsible for the curious time distortion fields affecting many significant new introductions promised for drupa 2016, but unlikely to appear.
