For an entity that is sophisticated enough to have a natural language
interface, I doubt that it would need any sort of container. A nanobot cloud
could be told to stay put, maybe self-contained in some sort of appealing
user-configurable shape, or mask the smell of my armpits as appropriate for
the social norms that I am mingling with. These nanobots would have to
self-destruct after they have been consumed by an olfactory sense, simply
for the reason that the manufacturer would make money by manufacturing more
for market demand :-)
