Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are leaders in robotic research. One of their more recent projects is this set of self-assembling robotic cubes.
The cubes are able to communicate with one another and move using an inertial system, using an internal gyroscope.
In the video below we here how the ability of the cubes to jump was discovered quite by accident.
