Self-Assembling Modular Robot

With a tip of the hat to Marc Andreessen (whose excellent blog is a part of my daily regimen), check out this video of a robot that gets kicked apart and then reassembles itself without human intervention. This is a (very) early alpha version of the T-1000. Cool today, scary tomorrow.

    Without human intervention…except for the human intervention where the one robot chunk isn't aligning itself right so the human intervenes to kick it again into a better position…

  • yeah, well, cut them some slack — still a pretty cool demo!

    Folks at CMU have put together a robot construction kit “roblock” (legos meets a robot). Check out http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2008/04/roblock
