Cornell Researchers Demonstrate Modular Robots

Though billed as self-replication the devices are really just modular robots that can create copies of itself using other modules. Each module is a cube 4 inches on a side and uses electromagnetic coupling to bind itself to other modules. While not as advanced as MTRAN-II system, the research does demonstrate the some of the capabilities of the modular approach.
