This article is a stub. It needs to be expanded.

Available methods for getting towards the necessary parallelity to produce macroscopic amounts of products

  • bottom up: fully parallel (and hierarchical) self assembly of atomically precise chemically pre-produced building blocks
  • top down: conventional photolithographic methods (MEMs)
  • exponential assembly (the glue in the middle?)
  • compact self replication (outdated)

  • self emerging highly distributed self-replicative capabilities
