Well, one cell is $56.89. Not that expensive for a 72MHz ARM, compared to Arduino Mega for instance. Of course, if you want to get cellular... it needs a hefty budget.

So this is a quote from the blog post about it....

Quote
Its what youd expect if Complex Adaptive Systems met Open Source Hardware at a bar, drank too much and had a love child that was raised on Physical Computing child support in the suburbs of Modular Electronics. Then one day that child spontaneously cloned itself hundreds of times, and decided to hold hands with all of its clone siblings so that it could play a crazy N^2 O*log(O) game of telephone.

just thought that was worth passing on :)

Wow! That's all I have to say... just have to watch out that they don't gather too many in one place and they start replicating themselves ;D
Think outside the box... inside is to crowded.
