Submission + - Is there a mass market for small, modular robots? (

rmpotter writes: MIT's self-assembling robot swarm is an interesting proof of concept, but perhaps the blocks need to be smaller so they can create more innovative designs. Now these guys have designed a modular robotics platform called Moti, that aims to bring robot applications to a much broader audience. They've even designed a number of 3D printed parts that have slots for MOTI. The question is, is there a market for easy-to-use, consumer robotics? Is the world ready for an Apple-like approach to robotics design?
