Ok, here's a question.

Does anyone know as precisely as possible what the minimum technology will be required in order to build the first assembler? In other words, if the exact procedures for building the first assembler are published on the internet, what will be the minimum resources required for any group of individuals to build that assembler?

Please elaborate. Are we talking $10,000 of desktop equipment? A $100,000 laboratory? A multi-million dollar research facility?
