Scientists discover that living robots can reproduce. What could go wrong?

On Thursday’s episode of “Pat Gray Unleashed,” Pat Gray and Keith Malinak covered a story that will leave you asking, “What could go wrong — besides everything?”

According to UVM, the microorganisms “swim out into their tiny dish, find single cells, gather hundreds of them together, and assemble ‘baby’ Xenobots inside their Pac-Man-shaped ‘mouth’ and that, a few days later, become new Xenobots that look and move just like themselves.”

“This is from Jurassic Park!” Pat said.
