Weekly Prompt Story: Nanobots

My Robots
By Christopher Munroe

I’ve built a robot, with a smaller robot inside.

And a smaller robot in there.

And another in there.

It’s smaller robots all the way down, basically. Like Russian nesting dolls. It took a lot of design work, but I think it was worthwhile.

Take them apart if you’d like, somebody eventually will, the temptation to see how far down they go is just too great!

And, when the last robot’s opened, nanobots will swarm forth, eradicating all biological life from this world, grey-goo style.

Wait, what? What do you mean, why?

Some things you do just because you can…


  1. Your weekly stories are an inspiration to me, Munsi. Even when I don't understand them.

  2. That's just how I roll, Rish. Keep writing nonsense and hope you occasionally hit the target, buckshot-style :P
