I did a bit of research into self-assmbling robots and programmable matter to create the crawlers in CONTAGIOUS. If you've read the novel, watch this video and you'll see that the crawler concept isn't science fiction at all, it's something that could happen within our lifetimes. With our evil lifetimes, that is.

Hey scott, where the fuck

Hey scott, where the fuck can I buy them thingys. I figured I'll mail you it bit by bit(cause i'm poor), have it assemble itself, then use the rocket boosters i added to do your bidding. (then you can get rid of that nagging Evil Queen who, on ocation, threatens you with pliers)

This is an awesome video. I'm amazed in the advances we are making everyday. Anyone know where these developed or filmed? -- Mike R. Bankruptcy lawyer

One Thing...

Eh T1000 anyone!! This with about a floppity-jillion more bits, much smaller and works a lot faster. And acts like a fluid. But still it's essentially the same thing! Run for your lives people! You may panic and flail your arms wildly!!!! In the words of FDO, and Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction: "Get the fuck out of Dodge"
