In Australia, Carl Masens from the University of Technology, Sydney, is building a 'NanoHouse' to demonstrate new products in action.

'The NanoHouse will be full of new materials and technologies. Windows and walls will keep rooms cool with heat reflecting coatings and paint. Glass will shut out light at the flick of a switch and will clean itself in the rain. Kitchen and bathroom surfaces will be antibacterial.' Carl Masens, University of Technology, Sydney
