DARPA RFP: Build Us a T-1000

Our old friends at DARPA are at it again. Now they're looking for willing robotics, chemical, and materials engineers to come out with the robitic equivalent of the T-1000 from the Terminator movies. According to the RFP:
"The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking innovative proposals to develop Chemical Robots (ChemBots): soft, flexible, mobile objects that can identify and maneuver through openings smaller than their static structural dimensions; reconstitute size, shape, and functionality after traversal; carry meaningful payloads; and perform tasks."
They don't mention anything about sending said devices back in time to perform assasinations, but we know where this is leading...
