Submission + - Swarmanoid 'Bots Rule Air, Land, Bookshelves (i-programmer.info)

However, most swarm-oriented robots are composed of many identical robots (such as The Kilobots.) In this case, there are three types of robots: a "hand-bot," which can climb bookcases and grab objects with hands; a "foot-bot," which can drive around and carry the hand-bot; and an "eye-bot," which flies around and perches on the ceiling to provide a perspective to the other bots. The Swarmanoid project is the successor project to the Swarm-bots project, and will build on the results obtained during the Swarm-bots project. A video of the robots retrieving a book .)
