Just like microelectronics, but about baryonic matter.
The mastery over some of the non-baryonic matter (the leptons, like
electrons) had brought us the advanced computation and
technologies, yet our ability to modify baryonic matter at will had
remained relatively limited: matter modification is still in the hands of
rather than people's homes.
The microatomics could start with a general purpose matter modification
device, connectable to a computer, and allows for complex and fine
procedures to be carried out on arbitrary lump of matter. One can
this as a multi-tentacle systems, with variable instrument (implement) at
ends of these tentacles, which could include:
- surgical knifes
- laser cutters
- water jet cutters
- palm-like mini hands
- peristaltic (worm-like) penetrators
- flagella-equipped penetrators
- electrostatic cutters
- sandpaper-like polishers
- suction endpoints
- washing endpoints
- aerosol endpoints
- ... etc. etc.
The tentacles systems would come with a mini operating table to affix
object to be modified. Upon connection to a computer, such systems
enable the user to use those the "multi-tenticle systems" using their own
skills which could be used then to train AIs to repeat.
Produced at large scale, such "matter modification kits" could be very
modular, and be sold as consumer electronics devices, enabling people
make fine modifications to arbitrary matter they have.

My message to TWI Global on the subject matter.

||I encourage you to keep reading up on things similar to
your idea. Nanotechnology (Drexler) comes to mind, as
do Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM)
||Something new (to me) in arranging matter atom by atom
is fractal electrons. They arranged atoms into a
Sierpienski triangle and then the electrons naturally
surrounding the atoms took on fractal forms.
||Another thought I had was how to print nozzles smaller
than the originating nozzle at at a 3d printer. The result
is smaller and smaller nozzles to print with from each
cycle. I think I thought this might be accomplished with
using a magnetic field to compress the extruder output,
making smaller dots than the diameter of the source
||In theory, you don't need anything special to print a nozzle
smaller than the one you're using. Just print a circle with a
smaller inner diameter.

based cutting. :)
