Programmable matter is probably the next technological revolution, and when it comes, it will change our lives as much as any invention ever has. Wil McCarthy visits the laboratories and talks with the researchers who are developing this extraordinary technology, describes how they are learning to control it, and tells us where all this will lead. The possibilities are truly astonishing.
