A host of ‘smarticles’ could give soldiers shape-shifting robots for future missions | Army Times

Georgia Institute of Technology and Northwestern University has taken a new approach to robot building, using “smarticles” that could lead to new ways for robots to move. Imagine being able to deploy a host of “shape-shifting” particles that form themselves into whatever soldiers need to accomplish missions.  These could be especially useful in rough terrain like forests, caves or urban areas.  The research has the potential to make robots capable of changing shapes, modalities and functions.
