Erich Drexler's infamous "Grey Goo

The warhead devours most of Paris, leaving a memorable image of a half-dissolved Eiffel Tower in viewers' heads, before the good-guy soldiers save the day.
In 1986, Dr K Eric Drexler wrote Engines of Creation, popularising the idea of nanotechnology but also coining the term "grey goo

." Frankly, "grey goo
" is a very long way off.
