DailyDirt: Buggy Robots

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Bugs might be creepy and annoying, but they sure can do cool things, like hanging off walls and ceilings, jumping incredible distances, and flying at highway speeds. It's no wonder people have been trying to build robots inspired by bug behavior. Here are just a few examples. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Hmm...

    Consider this

    A myriad microrobots ...

    First communicate ...

    Then coordinate ...

    A distributed network of sentient beings ...

    Then control?

    If so, will the Three Laws of Robotics prevail?
