These look to be a lot of fun -- but the way they suddenly jump and flip certainly looks a little spooky.

 

Can you imagine taking these back in time 50 years and leaving them on a table and then having them self-assemble when someone entered the room...

Communication between M-blocks

Great technology!! It reminds me the reconstruction of "The Terminator" robot in the movie. How the M-blocks co-ordinate with each other? Is there a mechanism to communicate between the M-blocks, I wonder, otherwise each M-blocks will need to be pre-programmed individually. How does this happen...any information on this?
