Just when you thought you'd seen it all

Watching one of those futuristic programs on the science channel came across "Claytronics". It's hard to really discribe this research for a new technology. It is defined as programable matter. The best example I can think of would be the movie Terminator where solid robots can morph into any size or shaped object one could imagine. Well folks the whiz kids at Carnegie Mellon University are working on just that 'cantoms' nono material with computer built in that can take and change shape to any desired form.
I can only imagine what this new technology will do for the psyche of future generations. On the positive side are benefits in medicine, housing, energy, and a host of dangerous jobs that need non human replacments. On the negative side are the new weapons that could be created in a moments notice and like the Terminator would be unstoppable.

True enough what you said about eminent domain on my blog. My property is commercial and just two blocks off the main highway in a fast developing area.

And they could have it under the right conditions. Give me a decent one acre lot further out of town that I approved of, with a nice big shop on it that I would turn part of into an apartment. And move all my crap for me.

Short of that they would have to kill me to take it, with me making a big stink all the time.

I read a book about future reality stuff, very interesting, you'll go into a reality room and have sex with the babe you pick anyway you want it. And the two of you will get along great because its your reality.

Hell, I'm an omnipresent spirit, I can't wait, bring it on !!!!

You get an odd bunch here Demeur.

I watched a show the other night on tattooing and there was a bit about the future on that where you could interact with the inks under the skin. Ultimately, imagine rolling up your sleeve and checking your email!

I'm going to have to find info on this.
