Swarm bots in action

Check out how these robots work in concert to execute a goal, namely pulling a young girl across the room. Individually these bots are useless, but together they get the job done. This is an excellent illustration of how individual and identical agents, when designed and programmed effectively, can be used in a collaborative fashion.

Now imagine that these bots are self-replicating...

The little girl was quite a trooper. I half-expected her to freak out.
