Biobots are coming - a little at a time
Researchers have developed soft robotic devices driven by neuromuscular tissue that triggers when stimulated by light – bringing mechanical engineering one step closer to developing autonomous biobots.


Very cool! The bit at the end introduces an aspect of these we haven't really played with at the biobot level (although it has been discussed a little at the synanotech level): That such devices wouldn't be perfectly identical and could have different details or levels of ability.

I suppose we could see both gengineering and 'breeding' playing a role in future biobot development depending on how this aspect of things evolves.
