September Progress

Bottom-up control begins at the molecular level through manipulation of the basic component, the nanobot. At the nanometer scale one will see convergent assembly lines generating nanobot components fueled by carbon split from CO2, and driven by carbon based nano-processors1. These self-replicating nanobots are chained together by nanotubes which simultaneously provide a way of transporting […]

Reactionary anti-nanobot tirade

The assembly line technique of replication is, as far as I know, an untested human invention. Plants and animals (at least at the cellular level) replicate via mitosis. But here we are dealing with RNA coding which is beyond my ability to demonstrate as it occurs in nature let alone as it might occur in […]

Life Size

Have been reading a book (LifeSize) about rapid research / prototyping. They provide instructions for creating a programmable screen that detects motion. They are using flexinol wire and a microprocessor attached to the computer via USB. The level of movement possible is limited but the possibility of constructing a working model is kind of exiting. […]

Monday’s meeting

We are interested, then, in everything from the intelligent application of traditional techniques to advanced digital processes in which digital fabrication entails the use of computers not only as design tools but also as tools for self-production.” IAAC Website Focusing on the high-tech portion of the brief we are considering a flexible building skeleton that […]
