Self Replicating Macro Bots
September 29th, 2005

Soft Machines reports on the random self replicating Macro Bots developed by Saul Griffith of MIT’s Media Lab
“…Griffith’s approach consciously mimics the self-assembly processes used in biological systems; the architecture of the structure is encoded in each of its components, and assembly depends on random interactions between these components. The combination of these two features is what leads to the huge potential advantage of this approach to self-replication over more deterministic techniques – the potential to make the process massively parallel and inherently scalable. This is fascinating and thought-provoking work…”
