First mecha, then programmable matter. What is the world coming to?

 

Biotech Breakthrough: Engineers Made a New Material That Can Be Programmed
In Brief
  • Researchers have created a 3D bulk material from silk fibroin that can be programmed to activate specific tasks when exposed to conditions like temperature or infrared light.
  • The material could be used to create everything from hormone-emitting orthopedics to surgical pins that change color when they near their mechanical limits.

 

 

It will be interesting to see how far this goes.

Interesting, but this isn't claytronics.

I thought programmable matter and claytronics were interchangeable.

Claytronics is actually one of the technologies that will be part of programable matter right?The others will be Utility Fog, toughable holograms etc, right?

Imagine if all programmable matter technologies working at the same time.It could create a very bizarre and surreal form of virtual reality in the real world.

I am waiting until molecular assemblers become possible like in star trek the next generation.


To follow my work on tropical cyclones

They're probably fantasy, and even realistic molecular assemblers are a long way away. Chemistry is simply more than sticking atoms together like legos.
