We all know iRobot, makers of lovable floor-cleaning friends
Scooba. They've got another robot on their roster, and
it's not acting alone. SwarmBot has been designed to use distributed algorithms that enable concerted action whether in
a group of 10 or 10,000 other bots. Each SwarmBot has a suite of sensors, 32-bit microprocessor, and an infrared system
to provide obstacle detection, inter-robot localization and communication. All of the above is packed into a wee 5-inch
cube that fits in the palm of your hand — if you can catch one, that is. Sure, iRobot says the SwarmOS is only being
used in these bots, but we all know what happens when the family goes on vacation — Roomba swarm party!
