Nanotech goes clay in catom claytronics

smokey nanobot

All this time we were kind of more hoping for self-forming robotic forms of the liquid metal variety, but we're still ready and willing to get down with catoms—claytronics atoms, or tiny nanobots that assemble shapes and forms on demand. Think of it as super high-tech Play-Doh that automatically move and create whatever shape your sick mind creative inclinations can dream up—just don't eat this stuff, ok? There's no telling where it's been shape-replicating lately, or with whom.
