Eric Drexler and Chris Phoenix point out in recent article for the IoP journal "Nanotechnology" that all the speculations about "grey goo" scenarios caused by out-of-control nanoassemblers might be greatly exaggerated.

There is, however, still a prospect of nanoassembler use for military or terrorist purposes ("black goo").
