semi-complicated ways when you add chemicals is a reality today. If you
mean Drexler-type diamondoid robots, they'll take a bit longer... but
there's no reason they couldn't happen. Quite possibly within a decade,
almost certainly within three. And they seem likely to be useful, so
there's a good chance they will happen. Probably not so much robots as
machines: molecular sorters, factories, sensor arrays, etc.
Did I answer your question? I'm not quite sure what you wanted to ask.
