Taking steps in the direction of a robotcalypse, engineers in Zurich create self assembling-flying-robots. These bots connect randomly and can fly off together. I can only imagine how many ways this technology will eventually screw us over. One lead researcher said they view the ‘bots more as a teaching tool for describing control systems than a tool of war’ (Wired). Isn’t that the main idea of all self assembling robot engineers?
