Eeek! The Singularity Approacheth: Self Replicating Machines

From SEED magazine comes news of a self-replicating machine "hailed as a step toward "Darwinian Marxism.""... luckily it does require humans to assemble it otherwise the universe would be clogged full of these things within 2 minutes. Makes you think about how cells don't need external controls to relf-replicate.. i guess there's enough jiggling (brownian motion) going on that the bits and pieces of protein and DNA fold into their correct configurations and slot into each other using electrical charge. I'm sure the Robots will kill us eventually.
