Are you talking about me or the robots? LOL

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...

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

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?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
