Nanodynamics grew rapidly in the early 21st century and is now one of the world’s largest corporations. Its biocybernetics division pioneered many uploading, cybershell, and brain-implant technologies. The company’s many subsidiaries manufacture all forms of nanomachines and microbots, as well as nanofabrication tools, precision-engineered carbon nanotubes, and cutting-edge molecular computers. Originally an American company (though now fully transnational), Nanodynamics has a reputation as the embodiment of the developed world’s military-industrial complex, dating back to the Andes War when it was a major supplier of robotic weapons to the Pentagon. It recently acquired Exogenesis from System Technologies, leading to a bitter and violent labor dispute. Nanodynamics’ headquarters is in Silicon Valley, California. Almost all of its laboratories and factories are in Earth orbit, or on Mars and Titan.
