Researcher’s from Carnegie Mellon University and Intel Corporation have been working on a project called Claytronics. The idea is to have hundreds of thousands of nano processors form together to create new solid objects in any shape or size. The challenges are vast, but once it becomes a reality it will change the world forever. Much like the cells in a body or complex organism, each small member of the whole is committed to doing its own part and communication between parts results in a unified form. The potential is endless.
