Advanced Nanotech

Advanced nanotechnology includes more recent developments. Like basic nanotech, advanced nanotechnology cannot self-replicate but the nanobots can function normally in most environments and are highly resistant to bacterial attacks and other environ- mental problems. Typical advanced nanotech consists of a generator—known as a “hive”—that produces nanobots as long as it is supplied with raw materials. Every such hive also includes a miniature disassembly unit and/or specialized nanomachines that collect raw materials for the generator. These hives produce nanobot swarms that are set loose to perform some function in the world.
