 These microrobots are all identical, but they come together to form aggregates that can do various things.

Yes, they are related to nanobots.  Might could be people should put more effort into developing ethics.  But microrobots aren't as powerful as nanobots; they're big and clunky.

At this scale, variable modular robots tend to be more powerful.  Frex, Cubelets are blocks that perform a function.  Stick them together to make robots.  Think of these like organs in a body.  Because they can do different things, they are useful; because they can be connected in many ways, they are versatile.
