Gases can supply certain raw materials for nanomachines, and nanomachines
can be used to remove pollutants from air and turn them into something else.
Gases lack structure, so they will remain simple. Liquids are somewhat like gases
, but ...
This basically mechanical change alters its color; the same principle can be used
in nanomachines, but reversibly. How a surface appears depends on how it
reflects or emits light. Nanomachines and nanoelectronics will be able to control
