Smart matter is an abstract future concept that combines nanoscale robotics and computer science to create individual nanometer - scale computers called smart matter atoms, or smart atoms, which can interact with each other to form tangible 3D objects that a user can interact with. This idea is more broadly referred to as "Smart matter". Smart matter has the potential to greatly affect many areas of daily life, such as telecommunication, human - computer interfaces, and entertainment. Smart matter refers to an ensemble of individual components, called smart atoms for Smart matter atoms that can move in three dimensions, adhere to other smart atoms to maintain a 3D shape, and compute state information.
