Thanks to nanobots — microscopic robots — we will soon be able to make inanimate objects behave as though alive. One will simply need to program the tiny automatons to swarm something and manipulate it, and a person could make a chair dance, or a monster of clay.

As a result, the future will seem very much like magic. Our clothes will dress us, our beds will make themselves, and random objects will fuse together and behave like a living thing, all with a command from us.
