The cover to GURPS Ultra-Tech for 4th Edition.

TL11 (The Age of Exotic Matter) is mostly composted of improved versions of the previous TL10 (The Robotic Age) tech with some of it being further improved in TL12 (The Age of Miracles). At this point in technological advancement, the barriers between robotic and biological enhancements are nearly indistinguishable. Nanobots that process materials start to replace small-scale manufacturing, and most functions of life itself can be replicated through machines. Mists of nanobots can pollinate fields, swarms of microbots can collect individual seeds from grain, and many machines become excitingly--and dangerously--self-replicating. If produced without caution, rogue nanobots can easily cause the planet to become a Hell World like Drexler--the "Gray Goo" planet, destroyed by bacteria-like nanobots.

Pure superscience devices are listed on TL^ (Superscience Tech)
