From the beginning of this review:

Legend of the Syndicate is a publication worth reading by anyone interested in the history of the Massive genre, or the future of social networks online.
From the end of this review:

Outside of novelty value, I'm not sure there's a lot of other people who might find this text enlightening
Thanks buttnugget. You actually made me waste 3 minutes with that opening "future of social networks" line. waste.

+ - Intel working on Claytronics: morphing robot grit

Submitted by

nanotrends writes "Intel is working on Claytronics an emerging field of engineering concerning reconfigurable microscale robots. The researchers propose to make moving, physical, three-dimensional replicas of people or objects, so lifelike that human senses would accept them as real. When you finished using a replica for one purpose, you could transform it into another useful shape. A human replica could morph into a desk or a chair. This would be a step towards utility fog and systems for synthetic reality.

Researchers have already created a prototype catom that is 44 millimeters in diameter. The goal is to eventually produce catoms that are one or two millimeters in diameter-small enough to produce convincing replicas. Utility fog is made of 100 micrometer foglet. This would have 1000 times less volume than a 1 millimeter spherical catom. Still Claytronics would be a significant step in the direction of utility fog."
