Researchers have created tiny robots that are capable of pulling incredible weights when they work together. The proof comes when the tiny mechanical critters pull a 2-ton car and its owner with them.
Stephen Hawking recently warned that artificial intelligence could end mankind, but a more sensible concern is the fact that robots will instead take our jobs.
Researchers from Harvard have created a robot swarm. Consisting of over 1000 'kilobots' the swarm can assemble itself and achieve tasks without the need for human intervention.
What I thought would be an electronics board with LED control and perhaps FM functionality, unraveled into a world which included Bluetooth, WiFi, displays and controllers as well as advanced robotics
European researchers are working on a project that will allow future robots to communicate and share info between them. They'll also be able to offload most computing to the cloud and enslave us all.
