Darpa working on T1000 type tech?!

Not so much chrome / mercury killer bots.... but a material that can self-assemble or alter their shape, perform a function and then disassemble themselves.

As the Wired / Danger Room article puts it, this material:
  • could lead to “morphing aircraft and ground vehicles, uniforms that can alter themselves to be comfortable in any climate, and ’soft’ robots that flow like mercury through small openings to enter caves and bunker complexes.” A soldier could even reach into a can of unformed goop, and order up a custom-made tool or a “universal spare part.”
Wait...robots that could flow like mercury?! Damn that DOES sound like a T1000!
