Self-Replicating Robot


Weird looking robot that can take pretty much any imaginable shape. Apparently it can rebuild itself and also could perform repairs on itself. Admittedly the machine is just a proof of concept — it performs no useful function except to self-replicate — but the basic principle could be extended to create robots that could replicate or at least repair themselves while working in space or in hazardous environments.

  • A good find there…shame it’s so old! I was about to blog it, but went to tag it on del.icio.us, realised it had been caned already, and then noticed the date of publication. Damn it, thought you’d nailed a scoop there. Anyway, keep up the good work, promising site you have here.
