Abstract
Advanced technology has become too much complicated for general public to understand. Very limited expert can understand and treat this sort of complicated technology. Advanced technology is losing close contact to most people. The present speaker characterize this phenomenon as technomonopoly. Unless people accept and support technology, environmental issues cannot be solved. Intelligent materials have to be developed to simplify technology in order to recover friendship to general public. When general public understand technology, feel satisfied with technology and think technology of their own, technodemocracy is thus achieved.
