Nanobots are microscopic robots created by Aperture Science, measured in nanometers (one billionth of a meter). In the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, Nanobots are used for repair and maintenance, fixing broken components at the molecular level.
The only named nanobot is Jerry, whom Wheatley had somehow convinced to employ him as part of the nanobot work crew, despite the difference in scale between the two of them (given Wheatley's unreliability and tendency to embellish the truth, it is uncertain if his "employment" was actually valid). Wheatley was fired by Jerry when he knocked a girder off while following a nanobot track.
When slowed down and reversed, Jerry's side of the conversation with Wheatley reveals several hidden messages.
