    Interesting research, but no, we don’t have living, reproducing robots

    Don't believe the hype—this isn't reproduction or replication.

    Hey, I am an author on a manuscript in that journal, PNAS, also in press this week:

    To be clear, the disagreement mentioned in my quote was from the aretechnica article and not me.

    Interesting article on gliding motility at Tom's link.
