NASA tests shape-shifting robot pyramid for nanotech swarms

I read a NASA press release yesterday about tetra-shaped walking robots. There’s an animation and everything.

My response to that is “Holy Shape-shifting Tetras, Batman!” :ahh:

Goals that move under their own power. How’s that for a new competition feature?

Man, I hope it works out for them. I’m sure it will; NASA has some of the greatest minds out there. It’s probably going to cost a whole lot of money to do it though…
