I thought this was pretty interesting and talk about taking something straight out the pages of Science Fiction. Scientist have now created little robots that are programmed to duplicate themselves.
LONDON (Reuters) - Self-replicating robots are no longer the stuff of science fiction.

Scientists at the Cornell University in Ithaca, New York have created small robots that can build copies of themselves.

Each robot consists of several 10-cm (4 inch) cubes which have identical machinery, electromagnets to attach and detach to each other and a computer program for replication. The robots can bend and pick up and stack the cubes.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

So in 20 years or so, how do you think the earth will be more like? Like it is in The Matrix or like it is in Terminator?
In all seriousness, this is amazing technology. It's in it's infacy right now, but it's going to be something to watch this type of technology evolve.
