More Needles in the Camel's Eye

Individually, the Kilobots have very limited capabilities and they also make mistakes. But the algorithm made specially to govern their behaviour is able to overcome these limitations.

In designing their robotic swarm, the researchers drew inspiration particularly from ants. Masses of army ants, Dr Rubenstein explained, also assemble themselves into structures (like nests and rafts) that defy the limitations of an individual six-legged specimen.”

I eat soylent for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday. It’s perfect for that. I eat muggle food for dinner and on the weekends. You can’t beat the convenience, though, for the workday. Particularly since I sit in a cube all day, I sip throughout the day and then use my lunch break to go for a walk. For me, doing dishes, grocery shopping and cooking are terrible. This saves me the trouble of doing that for 2/3 of my meals during the week.
