Chemical Robots

 

"In a pair of small laboratories in Prague, a swarm of tens of millions of robots is being prepared, to be set loose en masse."

 

"Instead of software and processors to guide them, their instructions will be written into the chemistry of their constituent parts. They are chemical robots, or as the 1.6m euro project's title has it, chobots."
