Already we have turned all of our critical industries, all of our

material resources, over to these … things … these lumps
of silver and paste we call nanorobots. And now we propose to teach
them intelligence? What, pray tell, will we do when these little
homunculi awaken one day and announce that they have no further need
of us?

The business leaders of Planet quickly perceived the commercial potential of Nanominiaturization, and constructed factories based around Industrial Nanorobotics. These factories utilize traditional Industrial Automation, but at a fraction of the size and cost. Productivity skyrockets along with profitability, as tiny robots churn out new products for consumption.
