278 Miniature E-Puck Robots

E-Puck.org is a swarm robotic project that comes close to the simulation of swarms you will find in software. It's from Switzerland. The video here shows a huge mass of robots, exactly 278, that unveil and show swarm behavior. I think they have to other chance, than doing so n that case.

The robots are relative small and you can even buy them, unfortunately for a relative high cost for about 500 Euro. It seems to me, that there is also an invisible culture of hacking the e-puck robot. See for example the magnetic extensions for e-puck or other videos in YouTube, tagged e-puck.
