This seems like one of those ideas that’s been rattling around the technology world literally for decades in part because lots of people find it fascinating in the abstract but nobody has been able to ever pin down with any level of acuity what it actually MEANS.

A well-programmed GreenArrays GA-144 sounds suspiciously like it perfectly fits all these arbitrary metrics of amourphousness sans “Devices having no a priori knowledge of their location.”
