Self-replicating Robots

Adam Arico alerted me to the following:

Finally, some Cornell researchers realized John von Neumann’s dream of self-replicating automata.  They are relatively simple and need some help in “feeding,” but once fed they are quite proficient.  Make sure you look at the video showing how they replicate.
