Smart Carpets



Wooden carpets/rugs etc. Not dissimilar in mechanics to the little robot thing I was going on about over here.


Quite good really – that’s got to be incredibly useful for something. Other than rugs I mean. Reminds me a bit of this thing I saw the other day being developed by DARPA


Programmable matter etc. Intel had something to do with it as well.

  1. The design of this is terribly exciting. It reminds me… oh, I remember of what, it reminds me of the olden metal diamond shapes that used to be fiddled with on a round magnet disk. Do you recall those? I think they were even called fiddles? Got it! Fiddle with a CRDL!

    The hours I spent with this!

    I accidentally bought about a 100 tiny neo magnets recently. They’re really cool – amazingly strong. You can do things like make 3mm wide, 30cm high towers – kindof gravity defying things.
