I think reproductive parts would be more frowned upon than destructive parts. Plus, for robots, constructional reproduction would make the most sense. They will just screw components together with their hands.

Reproduction is what makes viruses and bacteria so deadly, they just kill you by breeding inside of you.

If you kitted out your robots to do it,  it would be like Arnold SchwartzeNegger dropping mini Arnold SchwartzeNeggers as he was running around with his shotgun at the same time,  and if that happens,  I think that has overdone warfare somewhat...  and maybe one could become a little wary of something more powerful upstairs.

This seems related to your idea:

The video was interesting. Maybe good for nanobots.

Nice find. We must combine these tehnologies! Against the might of Mordor and Isengard there can be no victory!

I made some improvements to the artificial neurons wiring and circuitry. Now they should all receive semi-parallel power, in any orientation. It needs a way to circumvent the voltage drop created by rectifiers, to go fully parallel, and allow large neural nets to receive adequate power throughout. Maybe someone knows a good electronic component for that. The info channels should also work any which way, provided the setup doesn't have a large capacitance, I would like the voltage to drop quickly through the resistors.

The magnetic connections should now also work in any direction, because I finally realized that I should face all  the cube magnets, south-in, north-out, and the spring magnets, south-out, north-in.

Cool schematic!  :D

Electronics isn't complicated, its no more than a choo-choo train set to me, but It has a tendancy to surge the ego, so ppl get precious about it, and trolls get banned, then ppl don't like to learn off each other and inventions get forgotten...

You know... I think the neural net should be suspended in a cooling fluid of equal density to the net. Seems a good way to prevent traumatic brain injury. Can't be perfect, but if its very close, the assembly will only bump into the sides of its enclosure very gently, which the springs can easily handle.

If the bot ever hits combat situations then that's very important to consider.

OK, Finally! I thought I was stuck. I don't need an extra electronic component, I just needed to create an external power shell thing. Now slweep...

Before, electricity was sent into each cube, used to charge it's battery, power it's processor etc. Then it was sent out to other cubes, only with less voltage as a result of passing through diodes. Now, using only one power-source, (battery), a web of useful full voltage electricity is created on the outsides of the cubes, it remains intact (non short circuiting) however you place and turn the cubes. Each neuron can draw power from this high voltage net simultaneously.  :D

Highly good bit of tech drawing!   I do it two,  neat is nice, and its totally brain breaking compared to just aesthetics would you agree?
When I use diodes I don't worry about the voltage drop, its not so important to me.   Ive got a kind of logic that uses diodes, its one diode per inverter/serial step.
Its not to protect serial,  its to protect the parallel from overcommunicating,  which is what electricity tends to do.  Your positive and negative rail gives you way bad overcommuning which is bad for logic.

Heres a pneumatic machine I did, probably doesn't work,  but I was trying my best to make it work as best I could, and kept it neat, all the vias are correct last time I checked.

One thing I can say,  you only need 2 layers for ANYTHING, even an alu or cpu,  you never need 2 vias ontop of each other, im pretty sure.

I tested the wiring ideas and made a overview video for the project:
