Okay, it's not a nano-machine, but at least it won't make you sneeze!

[The microbot has 8 kilobytes of memory, along with a simple temperature
sensor. But future versions could be outfitted with anything from
chemical sniffers to a miniaturized camera or microphone. Lightweight,
mobile and small enough to be virtually invisible, specialized microbots
may eventually perform tasks like searching for bombs. They could even
be pressed into duty as mechanical spies that wait until their target
opens his safe to take out secret papers, then climb up behind him to
quickly snap a photo before scurrying back to their insect-size hiding
place. "You might have to worry about what's sitting under your desk,"
Heller jokes.]

Hmm, but the real question is, does it have a TCP/IP stack :)

It's been around for a little while. There's a movie here

Somewhere on CD I've got a small Real Player version of that. I'll
upload it if I can find it. Somewhere

I had to look to check but it really doesn't appear to be any smaller
than Alice. Alice looks slightly taller but around the same size. Might
even be the same size if it was built without spaces in the boards.

Kinda doubt Sandia went out and started with some swatch motor...;-]
