Kilobots — cheap swarming robots

August 31, 2011

I won’t often repost links from slashdot,  since I’d like to emphasize off-the-beaten-path subjects, and slashdot is a well-beaten path, but this story was interesting enough that it deserves a re-post.  The The Self Organizing Systems Research Group at Harvard is working with swarming robots which are  tiny, easy to assemble, and cheap (less than $14 each).  The article, which is from the IEEE website, has a narrated video of the Kilbots in action.
