Utility Fog Prototype

vik writes "The BBC are carrying an article about successful experiments by Professor Daniela Rus and colleagues from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, US, to produce a Utility Fog robot. They call them robotic molecules and the prototypes are 5cm cubes currently capable of moving in two dimensions. However they clearly recognise the 3D development path to Utility Fog and have created software to manage the morphing of one formation to another. There are also animations of the existing hardware in action and associated publications off the same link.
