Claytronics is referred as ‘Programmable Matter’ Catoms and similar to nanomachine. Claytronics is a combination of Nano scale robotics and computer science to create individual nanometer-scale computers. Claytronics is a concept of combining billions of micron-scale or catoms and creating a computer generated artifacts as a real thing and this complete self-assembling and controlled over the internet by real one living miles away. catoms can interact with each other and form tangible 3D objects that a user can interact with. Claytronics is a future concept of developing modular robotics. Claytronics concept is a basis for forming new media type which is useful in reproducing moving 3D objects into the real world. Claytronics is of programmable matter and its primary function is to organize itself into shape of an object and to render its outer surface to match the visual appearance of that object. This technology is used in education, healthcare, entertainment and activities such as in video games and more. Improving human-to-human communication even when they remain considerably far away is the main purpose of this technology.
Concept predicts changing multimillion-module robot outfits into three-dimensional prospects with sufficient conformity so as to persuade that the visions are for real. Using Claytronics, the physical presence of the person sitting beside can be felt even though they are far away. The advantages of saving lives during disaster, doctor operating patient remotely and other advantages drives the future of claytronics market. High research and maintenance cost are the constraints which could be overcome in the fore-coming years.
Claytronics market can be segmented based on types into Planer catoms, Electrostatic catoms, Giant Helium Catoms, Stochastic catoms and Millimeter Scale catoms. Copeonents into hardware and software.
