Adjusting the clock rates of the various components should do it. If the systems for coordination are running faster than everything else then an entity can grow in size whilst maintaining unity. As with many aspects of technology in OA this is a trade off.

  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
