Finally a way of demonstrating practically some beautiful mathematics which has been around for years.

Oh, c`mon, that was pretty fawcking cool. I don`t know what it`s good for, but there`s probably some good application for it I just can`t think of. 8-)

Oh ya?! I heard that the Pentagon is looking into making predator drones completely computer operated. Computers killing human beings. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. It`s closer than you think.

Have scientists ever heard of Replicators? They seem to be trying to make some.

That is just cool. Even cooler, being paid to work on this stuff.

Don`t worry. These things have no stamina. Their batteries die very fast.

My company builds a briefcase sized UAV that is less agile, but can stay up for 45 minutes. This is much more effective.

I for one welcome out Quadrotor Overlords...
I LOVE the figure 8 movement!

I`ve always said: there will NEVER be real AI, but it can come awful close...

It is not "Nano". In this context, "nano" refers to nanometers and the robot, or at least parts of it, would be less than 100 nanometers. That means you`d be able to put 1,000 of them side by side just to be as wide as a human hair. It isn`t even a micro robot. It is simply a small robot.

I expect to see this on Big Bang Theory sometime in the near future. This is right up Howard`s alley.

Wow that`s cool. Can`t wait until we use them to fly over an alien planet so their residents can film them, put them on the interstellar internet equivalent of YouTube (AlienTube I`d bet) and claim they saw a big silent UFO.
