There exists the possibility of building tiny devices, which in sufficient amounts will be able to circulate around the human body detecting, at an early stage, diseases such as cancer.


Machines can be designed that make use of waste to generate themselves or generate devices which make use of energy in a more efficient way.

Location, Production and Using Up of Materials

Globalization is the process by which the world is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of massively increased trade and cultural exchange.

  • Increased international trade
  • A company operating in more than one country
  • Greater dependence on the global economy
  • Freer movement of capital, goods, and services
