A question about Nanobot

  • #1
I dont know if this question is stupid, but i am curious

Since the nanobots are so small, will they follow or getting affect by the rules of quantum physics?

There are no such things as general purpose nanobots, and I'd expect that any actualized nanobots would be micron-sized (why? that's the best that nature has done, and she's been at this much longer than we have). Consequently, they're at the size where the macro rules no longer completely apply (gravity is negligible, contact forces are massive), but not quite small enough such that the quantum rules dominate (non-localization, confined energy states, etc.)
