US scientists have developed a robot that can reproduce itself from spare parts. Writing In Nature who created the robot say that this proves that it is not only living things that can reproduce!
 



news.bbc.co.uk
Their long-term plan is to design robots made from hundreds or thousands of identical basic modules.

These could repair themselves if parts fail, reconfigure themselves to better perform the task they have been set, or even to make extra helpers.

"Space applications clearly come to mind. If you're sending a robot to one of Jupiter's moons, and the robot breaks, then the mission is over," Dr Lipson told the BBC.
"So you would like to have a robotic system that can adapt, or to repair itself, remotely. So that would be one clear application."

This is claerly the beginning of AI.

This will be good for things like space exploration but bad for the human race in general.

When robots start to build more robots and eventually create an army its time for us mere humans to move......to Mars!

This is the fourth duplicate of this story on ATSNN.

There is another thread that is non-ATSNN on this.
