This paper presents the cloud computing environments, network principles and methods for graphical development in realistic naval simulation, naval robotics and virtual interactions. The aim of this approach is to achieve a good simulation quality in large networked environments using open source solutions designed for educational purposes. Realistic rendering of maritime environments requires near real-time frameworks with enhanced computing capabilities during distance interactions. E-Navigation concepts coupled with the last achievements in virtual and augmented reality will enhance the overall experience leading to new developments and innovations. We have to deal with a multiprocessing situation using advanced technologies and distributed applications using remote ship scenario and automation of ship operations.

Atomic force microscopes and scanning tunneling microscopes can be used to look at surfaces and to move atoms around. By designing different tips for these microscopes, they can be used for carving out structures on surfaces and to help guide self-assembling structures. The top-down approach anticipates nanodevices that must be built piece by piece in stages, much as manufactured items are made. The properties such as non-linearity, oversensitivity to environmental parameters, geometrical/material-dependence, etc. result in the particular design of each nanomanipulation task according to specific conditions and disturbances. The precision and the speed of nanomanipulation are two important factors in the construction of a dimensionally well-defined pattern in a minimum amount of time.
Nanorobotics is the one of the most advanced topics today. The first useful applications of nanomachines, if such are ever built, might be in medical technology and new materials fields. The advantages seems to be tremendous due to level of interactions and implications. Due to their be microscopic sizes, it would probably be necessary for very large numbers of them to work together to perform microscopic and macroscopic tasks. Nanofactories is the possible solution to increased number or nanomachines needed for such tasks.
