Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Claytronics is an abstract future concept that combines nanoscale robotics and computer science to create individual nanometer-scale computers called claytronic atoms, or catoms, which can interact with each other to form tangible 3-D objects that a user can interact with. This idea is more broadly referred to as programmable matter. Claytronics has the potential to greatly affect many areas of daily life, such as telecommunication, human-computer interfaces, and entertainment. Current research is exploring the potential of modular reconfigurable robotics and the complex software necessary to control the "shape changing" robots. "Locally Distributed Predicates or LDP is a distributed, high-level language for programming modular reconfigurable robot systems."show more
