On September 14 in a lab at Glasgow, UK scientist built cell-like bubbles from metal-containing molecules. Lee Cronin hopes to make them self-replicating and evolving inorganic entities.
My personal take on this is amazement and concern. I absolutely love that we may have inorganic lifeforms roaming around, but if they do success and the new entities obtain a comparable intellect to our own what guarantee do we have that they will like us? Though setting that aside the use of molecule metal cell-like structures could jump forward any industry that uses metal. Image smart metal that is able to send information to a computer to inform us of the condition of the structure and were immediate attention is needed.
