Michael Crichton has done it again. This time he's poking around with nano-technology and artificial intelligence. As usual the story is gripping and downright scary. From official release/information:
Product Description: In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles—micro-robots—has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.
It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour.
