In this talk I will describe how Wall's theory of thickenings allows us to
define functors on the homotopy category of certain finite CW-complexes with
values in groups of certain diffeomorphism classes of manifolds.

I will then report on joint work with Csaba Nagy where establish basic facts
and computations for these functors in important special cases.
