Kinematic Self-Replicating Machines is a 2004 textbook offering a general review of the theoretical and experimental literature pertaining to physical self-replicating systems. The principal focus of the book is on self-replicating machine systems (see also: robot kinematics). Specifically with kinematic self-replicating machines systems in which actual physical objects, not mere patterns of information, undertake their own replication.

Kinematic was written by Robert Freitas and Ralph Merkle.
