I find it cool how it's so organic and that each part knows what it's doing depending on the previous link.

Also..............I don't know if they are dependent on the nases built into the table, but the way they stand up is pretty special

Yeah it's really cool. I wonder how the controls of the system works though, everything looks like it works perfectly, but it could just be very well aligned and calibrated :P

I'd be really impressed if it has a whole range of self-adjusting systems that would make up for error though.. Like if you placed one piece slightly off initially.

Oh yeah, good point. I imagine a couple of mm would throw it off

my geuss(very crude geuss) is that each one has a microcontroller in it, now if you wanted to control one individually you would send a pulse(say 5) and you would then control the 5th in the group, im probably wrong, but it still seems like a cool robot
