Answer:

  1. RepRap – a self replicating rapid prototyping machine
  2. John Von Neumann
  3. Universal Constructor “schematic”

(1) is a real-life implementation of device (3) described first by (2).

    RepRap, which basically rapid-prototypes itself, John von Neumann and a von Neumann Universal Constructor. The connect, basically, is self replication.

    2. is Von Neumann.
    1. is the Rep Rap machine, an old boing boing post says stuff about self replicating universal constructor sets.
    Sentient Lego, perhaps :)

    google(neumann self replication) = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.....ng_machine

    neumann coined the term ‘universal constructor’, the figure being in 3.

    RepRap Project,Von Neumann,Von Neumann’s Universal Constructor.

    RepRap Robot/3D Printer which reproduced itself.

    von Neumann(2) and his first implementation of self-reproducing universal constructor (3)


  5. RepRap which is a robot capable of printing parts of itself in 3D.
    Von Neuman Machines are self-replicating

    (1) is a Reprap machine which can be used to make a Von Neumann universal constructor(2) which was designed by John Von Neumann(3).

    reprap

    John von Neumann invented the Universal Constructor – a self-copying manufacturing machine – as a theoretical concept.

    RepRap! Damn I asked a question on this in teh quiz I did today!

    The device is called a (1)reprap.
    An early practical step in (2)John Von Neumann\’s idea of self replicating machines such as the (3)Universal Constructor he envisioned.

    1. The RepRap project
    2. John von Neumann
    3. The von Neumann Universal Constructor

    1 is the first attempt at realising a practical 3, first proposed by 2.


  11. Device 1 is RepRap 1.0 “Darwin” prototype, a self-replicating machine.

    It’s based on the Von Neumann architecture and machine.


  12. Correction:
    That should be Von Neumann Universal Constructor and not “architecture and machine”.


  13. byslexia

    RepRap machine. Rapid prototyping machine that can create artificial life.

    self replicating machines


  15. sidsen

    reprap

    neuman and the universal constructor – a self-copying manufacturing machine

    (1) is RepRap Project by Adrian Bowyer and Vik Oliver that is based on the concept of self-replicating machines a concept promoted by (2) i.e. John Von Newman

    (3) looks like a self replicating thingy so the guess

    Actually it could be circuit board building also


  18. daspar

    1.reprap.a self replicating machine
    2.John Von Neumann created the field of cellular automata,constructing the first self-replicating automata with pencil and graph paper
    got this far,couldnt figure out whats the 3rd one though


  19. 2-D

    2. is John von Nuemann. So i’m guessing the device and funda in question has something to do with his last book called The Computer and The Brain ?


  20. RepRap, works like a printer, but rather than squirting ink onto paper, it puts down layers of molten plastic that solidify. These are built up to make three-dimensional objects…
    VOn NEumann Universal Constructor is also a self replicating machine!

    RepRap Project – Rapid prototyping and direct writing technologies are sufficiently versatile to allow them to be used to make a von Neumann Universal Constructor.


  22. Sri Harsha

    RepRap (in Picture 1) is a working prototype of Von Neumann\’s \’Universal Constructor\’ – a theoritical concept of a self-copying manufacturing machine.
