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...

Re: Communication between M-blocks

So far the researchers have been concentrating on prefecting the jumping locomotion technique, but next on their list is coordinating the activities of their "army" of M-Blocks.

Communication between M-blocks
Sanjib.A   10/10/2013 5:11:35 AM
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?

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
