Reminds me a little bit on marine coin! If there is a contest for creativity, they would be top 3.
I dont get why people are excited about some hash stakes and a coin where you "can" pay at amazon... this is the real stuff where dreams are made of. 
The City in the sky and Jinn-HashPower Baloon is good competition.  :D

A new weather network, with mass distributed nodes. This could even get into pollution levels or reduced ozone zones, providing an up to date incredibly accurate picture of the potential dangers for us humanoids... Grab air samples to locate the source of polluters.. Beyond that slap some cameras on them to trace animal populations, whalers/poachers, plankton levels, atmospheric light reflection, ice coverage. Magnetometer for weakened magnetic zones, could provide the best spots to view aurora...  much potential

It's so great for human!

Wouldn't it be more energy efficient to have the bots in orbit around earth. That way they dont need to worry about staying afloat.

You must find a way to speed up a bot to 8 km/s for that.

This is usually being made with rockets. Just ask nearby cosmonaut to drop your bot on the orbit.

a satellite needs energy in order to stay in orbit. If he doesn't correct his trajectory periodically, it hits the ground after some months/years.

For small bots it's not a problem with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ion_thruster.

no contradiction with y post :)  just wanted to point out it's not as simple as it appears.

What about a helium/air subspace (air submarine). It's not invented yet AFAIK, but sounds plausible based on a submarine working. It would need a compressor and some controllable check valves, probably some more stuff I have no technical knowledge of...

This would give you the ability to control elevation..

You're right! Surprised I didn't remember them, played a lot of the early warcraft games :P. There's inert helium that could be used, with new materials better than " intestines of cattle."[1] Since there's no passengers and I assume very small there shouldn't be much problems, other than airspace restrictions...

I ran across this academic paper and thought it might inspire some ideas for the city in the sky.

"Abstract— This paper addresses the self-assembly of a large
team of autonomous boats into floating platforms. We describe
the design of individual boats, the systems concept, the algorithms,
the software architecture and experimental results
with prototypes that are 1:12 scale realizations of modified
ISO shipping containers, with the goal of demonstrating selfassembly
into large maritime structures such as air strips,
bridges, harbors or sea bases. Each container is a robotic
module capable of holonomic motion that can dock in a
brick pattern to form arbitrary shapes. Over 60 modules
were built of varying capability. The docking mechanism is
designed to be robust to large disturbances that can be expected
in the high seas. The docking mechanism also incorporates
adjustable stiffness so that the conglomerate can comply to
waves representative of sea state three, and have the ability to
dynamically stiffen as required. The component modules for
autonomous assembly, docking and simultaneous collision-free
planning as well as the software architecture are presented
along with the description of experimental verification."

How about stick them in a bird?  :P
They already live in symbiosis with humans and you don't need very advanced  tech
Study the different kind of birds and choose what specie fill your needs, there are birds which live always fliying: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_swift :)
Maybe you don't need them to be autonomous, could be enought if you think in the birds behavior and spread the robots according

I thought of this too but was worried about lightning from metal implants, collars or whatever is used. It could be interesting though, there was a crow vending machine made in 2008 with TED talk(can't link). They have similar intelligence to chimpanzees apparently. They could hunt pennies, cigarette butts, garbage and probably many more interesting acts for food. So if this is possible, we could push it to the limits where birds run missions for food. It would be hilarious if this sparked an animal integrated economy.

PS. I'm not approving of implants, seems intrusive.

PSS. Google: "bacteria in the atmosphere." There's bacteria living @ 33000 ft, and molecular sized machines are in development. Could be another route.

interesting Space Internet project - http://www.geekwire.com/2015/photos-spacex-founder-elon-musk-unveils-new-10b-space-internet-plan-private-seattle-event/

For sure. There's been quite a lot of these global internet initiatives in the last year. Google's Project Loon, then there is Internet.org, Richard Branson and Virgins space-satellite project and now finally Elon Musk and Space X. Definitely promising
