 NANOROBOTICS FACTS AND INFORMATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
These nanorobot swarms, both those which are incapable of replication (as in utility fog) and those which are capable of unconstrained replication in the natural environment (as in grey goo and its less common variants) are found in many science fiction stories, such as the nanoprobes in Star Trek, or nanobots in Red Dwarf.
The current view is that nanorobots capable of replication outside of a restricted factory environment do not form a necessary part of a productive nanotechnology, that the process of self-replication can be made inherently safe, and free-foraging replicators are in fact absent from current plans for developing and using molecular manufacturing.
Medical nanotechnology is often expected to utilize nanorobots injected into the patient to perform their treatment on a cellular level.

 InfoSatellite.com - Nanorobotics - Part 1
Nanorobotics deals with the controlled manipulation of objects with nanometer-scale dimensions.
As an atom has a diameter of a few Ångstroms (1 Å = 0.1 nm = 10-10 m), and a molecule´s size is a few nanometers, nanorobotics is concerned with interactions with atomic- and molecular-sized objects, and is sometimes called molecular robotics.
It seems that the birth of nanotechnology is associated with a talk by Nobel-prize winner Richard Feynman entitled "There is plenty of room at the bottom" in 1959 at the California Institute of Technology.
