Catoms

Scientists unveil 'clay' robots that will shape our world

From the article: See also Programmable matter.

Comments:
I'm glad to see that the "utility fog" concept first envisioned by Josh Storrs Hall is finally becoming something more than just a nice idea.
Now if only the same could be said abot Wil McCarthy's "Programmable Matter" (Ultimate Alchemy, Wired Mag). We may well be able to bypass the whole virtual realty thing and go straight on to a digitally programable reality.
 
Yes, patmoz, I first read about this concept a few years ago when it was called "utility fog"

The main difference between it and the newer buzzword term "programmable matter" is that PM is much denser than fog with with it's interlocking arms; vs the close electromagnetic interaction of the PM catoms.

You could have a room filled with utility fog and it might only look a little hazy; but PM would be thick as peasoup.
