I suppose my latest fascination, papercrafting, is even less durable than the plastic that's less durable than metal. A papercrafted craft robo is theoretically possible, but it wouldn't last very many jobs.

So too for a Lego machine that can recreate itself from Lego bricks. At some point you gotta go out and buy the feedstock for these things.

The metal lathe is the first such tool I ever heard of that was capable of self reproduction. it doesn't sound so impressive if you factor in the human attention necessary for birth.
