Ben Goertzel at HPlus Magazine talks about his idea for robots made of quarter centimeter to one centimeters pieces that he calls Inorganic Macrocell Robots or IMBots
The idea seems very doable with the current millimeter scale claytronics which are themselves precursors to Micron based claytronics and precursors to utility fog. Utility fog needs early stage molecular nanotech to fully realize.
Ben talks about a muscle ball made up of IMBot sensors and cameras and actuators.
