Soon enough, the scaffolds will be proteins and nanomaterials and the systems will be powered by light, air, and glucose. Then we will see hoards of nanomachines that can perform tissue repair, surgery, and other operations at the cellular and then molecular levels.

#4 and #5- it is a test-bed for new technology, not a new toy for you. Give them a year or two and these will be flying, probably as surveillance drones.
