That is quite interesting.

Harvard is also working on this, self assembly robots. Still in infancy, needs work.



Merge the two concepts, scale down, and something along the lines of the replicators of the show Star Gate seems a possible outcome,

That's awesome! Will be the future of transport and deployment!
