These versatile robots, called M-blocks, look like the beginning of an amazing technology. Though they appear simple, with no external parts, the blocks can spin, jump and snap together to create all kinds of shapes, depending on the job at hand.
Unlike normal robots configured for one specific function, these modifiable robots can morph into any shape required for a given task’s needs, changing shape at a moment’s notice.
