Soccer Nanobots

The “robot” in the video below is about half the width of a grain of rice. I’m not really sure if I’d call it a “robot”, because it’s more of a remote control device that’s being pushed around by EM fields from afar (so it has neither sensors nor autonomy on any level)… On one level it’s no more a robot than a leaf being blown around by a leaf blower, but at the same time, it’s definitely an eerie precursor of the many forms of limbs that shall tear us to bits in the impending robot apocalypse.

More details here.


  1. That’s amazing! wow!
    i still support my theory that the smoke monster in LOST is made out of Nanobots.
    Also…you said you would stay on IAM but you didnt!…:(

    With the nanobot technology, a robot wouldn’t need to tear us humans limb from limb: all they’d have to do is either two things:
    1 – inject us with nanobots that systematically destroy us from the inside out.


    2 – inject nanobots into us and assimilate the human beings into slaves.

    It’s a scary thought.

  3. if nanobot style technology can make people who look like seven of nine it can’t be a 100% bad thing.

    It took thousands of years for scientists to prove that the universe came from a big bang, therefore proving that what people had believed for thousands of years (genesis) wasn’t all bullshit.

    It tooks forty more years for scientists to prove that a soccer players brain didn’t need to be bigger that half a grain of rice, proving again that intuition leads to knowledge much faster than science.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
