Swarmanoids : I have seen the Future in these

Imagine that you want a book that is located on a shelf several rooms over, but you do not want to get out of your chair.You have two options,

(1)You get up and fetch the book yourself
(2)You have an army of Swarmanoids to do your bidding

This robotic swarm is the pet project of [Dr. Marco Dorigo] from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, and is impressive to say the least.As the Mission: Impossible-esque video plays out, you see several different robots working in concert, flying, climbing, and driving around to fetch a book from a shelf. The robots have no information regarding their surroundings, forcing them to learn and “speak” to one another in order to reach their goal once the target has been located.

Check out the Swarmanoids in action below.
