[P]rocess [M]ODs

A “user” receives a “box of bots” (nanobots configured at molecular scale to resemble a solid cube [at human scale] that will fit into the palm of a hand)
nanobots react thru wireless signal via nano-processors hidden within the carbon body.

Process modifications:
A “user” inputs data to User Interface(UI) [data includes: # of persons, activities desired, personal information, see data]
The user information is calculated into the script.
Spacial parameters defined and ran thru script.
–[see experiment: social erosion]

The nanobot processor reads climate/local/global data (sunlight, wind, temperature, long/lat, etc. )
Information is calculated into script
Exoskeletal needs are set based off of data.

The user data and climate/local/global data are combined to find the form.

Data is then input into an evolutionary algorithm(TBD) based off of a growth script (TBD) until the optimal solution is achieved.
The structure links up wirelessly to a global/local p2p network to optimize itself based off of given criteria [stated previously].

-Loop for continuous optimization.

Growth – convergent assembly creates initial “box of bots”. Growth is based off of a natural growth algorithm such as the l-system of recursive growth. After this process bots are able to self-replicate thru Co2 cracking.

Spatial – how is space defined after use inputs information?? What “yoke” (space) does the eggshell (exoskeleton) grow around?
Possibly based off of erosion algorithm experiment (social erosion)
Space is a collection of data from the user information, climate data, and le modular data.

Capillaries – are “voided” out as exoskeleton grows. based off of l-system growth–don’t grow, but are “left out”. the Boolean extraction of an l-system capillary ran thru the exoskeleton. these are two types : hydro collection and wind distribution. Hydro collection breaks down into distribution water and collection water. Water being collection opens pores and basins on rain side of site to the collection and storage “tanks”. Distribution capillaries are used to distribute potable water throughout the structure. Wind capillaries are used to create wind tunnels which ventilate the structure. Pores open up on the side where the desired wind is present. (SW/NW)

Rooting System – home anchors itself into ground by growing “tentacles/roots” into the soil, which grow like roots based off of the l-system. dig down into soil to create a structural stronghold into the site. keep building grounded.

Self-Replication – Nanobots use nanotubes in process of carbon dioxide cracking where co2 is split into oxygen (o2)/carbon(c). Carbon is then harvest by the nanotubes, based into the carbon hollow body of the nanobot, mixed with a catalyst in the “factory” and made into a new polycarbonate body for a new body, nanotube, or nano-processor.

Collective Knowledge – nanobots use hive or swarm theory to communicate. Each bot only know basic jobs to perform its task. They use collective knowledge to act as a single organism.. much like ants or a computer network. Computers offline can be tapped into via the network for extra storage, speed, etc. to contribute to the whole. one nanobot by itself might not be capable of handling very complex problems such as calculating all of the data needed to create the structure, but by pulling from the collective knowledge of the whole, the structure can become much like a living organism, or like ants where they are able to form ant bridges, etc. data, as well as electricity, are sent wirelessly to the Nano-processors, which then pass along electricity and data thru the multi walled carbon nanotubes from one bot to another.

Openings – no long are openings seen as windows and doors but as permeable membranes. Desired areas of entries can become gaseous and allow of passage of a solid object (the human). this happens at the molecular level of the nanobots where the density of the structure is minimized to give a gaseous, permeable affect. self-reproduction allows for the nanobots to become more dense at the molecular level, allow for the porous opening to fill back up and become a protective membrane once again.

Nano-Factory – the nano-factory within the carbon hollow body, might look nothing like convergent assembly as we know it today, but instead “tentacles” [see ‘flagella’] which hang from the inside of the carbon body. these “tentacles” are used to pass carbon molecules along from one tentacle to the next acting as stages in a factory. each tentacle only knows very basic operations, once again much like an ant (pass molecule left/pass molecular right). one tentacle does not see the entire picture, and focuses only on its job. this then mixes the molecules with a catalyst to produce the needed part.

Climate Medications – include shifting permeable walls, opening of capillaries, thickening/thinning of walls, denseness at molecular level, surface area ratio in direction of sun along axis, harvesting of essentials (sun, wind, light), non harvesting.

These are a couple thoughts and processes of the project that i am working on at the moment.
