Machines the size of a virus, that can be programmed to do different tasks. Brought to you by the same guys that have difficulty working their DVD recorder.
Shit to get in:
Fantastic Voyage, inner space, Red Dwarf, Deus Ex, at least 4 micro dickjokes. Sneeze and the machine is gone (something about allergy screening maybe?) riff on Count Zero and other sci fi for nannites as a plague
Talk about the planned good - and point out these ar the same guys that couldn't build a fucking telescope - tech arc - where the earlier stuff is a failure.
Ways to control this shit - discuss mutations too. Bring in von Neumann machines.
