Manipulation, orientation and handling of components, subparts and finished products is an essential element of any industrial process, which attracts substantial portion of resources and infrastructure. A classic manipulation, e.g. robot arms, is not always efficient at the micro-scale and suffers in terms of scaleabil- ity. We proposed an alternative concept of manipulation based on an array of actuators. The proposed system rely on the natural concepts of scaleability and parallelism: ciliary motion and excitable media control.
