I have constructed the designs for Nano-factories which are a type of Self Replicating Vonn Neurmann device which do not put out radiation you may want to take notes for future reference. (http://www.sciencefo...tories-discuss/)
My Obsidian probe design would have self-replication/repair capabilities, utilize a reactionless drive, as well as an alcubierre drive, using electromagnetism...and it's a free energy device - all in 1. The emission of radiation is just a byproduct of an em flux caused by the magnetized friction of fast-spinning lodestone particulates.
Certain planets might have all the materials needed to start a reaction without a lab in molecules near hydrothermal vents in expanding plumes near the surface of a body of water on a sunny day...depending on whether or not the universe is infinite. Obsidian is rapidly cooled lava that can contain magnetized lodestone, light polarizing microlites, and highly photoluminescent hematite.
According to Murphy's law there is a probability that those materials could come together in such a fashion so as to heat a microcosm of space to the Planck temperature although the reaction wouldn't last long and there would be vastly astronomical odds of such an event reoccurring anywhere in an infinite universe.
When hydrothermal jets shatter the nano-particulates free from volcanic glass they can form into floating spherical microstructures within plumes when submerged in water. If these particular nano-particulates are aligned properly they can focus sunlight upon curved looping pathways creating a spiral of narrowing beams that converge in the center, it may take a while for them to spiral out of the beam-narrowing feedback loop and there's an infinitessimal chance, given an infinite universe, that Planck temperatures can be achieved, which would force the sorrounding lodestone into an electromagnetic flux if a Planck particle is produced with a highly gravimagnetic spin within such a small system.
Back on topic, can your self replicators be synthetic neurons? They can be used for initial substrate independence of people's minds, and then my obsidian probes can assimilate them as synthetic neurons don't have to worry about radiation poisoning.
