I was checking my RSS feeds today and came across this article about swarm robots, with this video attached:
It kind of reminds me of an episode of Numb3rs where Charlie uses swarm bots to map out a train to allow rescue of the passengers. I know that it’s well-meaning research and all, but I can’t help but laugh at the video. Not because it’s overtly funny, but rather because of how it all comes together, and because the look on the girl’s face. Well, watch it and find out. Now, robot swarm, my name is Chris Hansen, why don’t you have a seat.
