Particle Swarm

Particle swarms are found in virtual environments. An individual particle swarm is composed of a large number of independent, intelligently-behaving particles, each of which possesses certain properties, such as if one moves, the ones near it are pulled in a certain way, or twisted or turned around, etcetera.

They are the closest we have come to a true liquid state in our environments, with each particle affecting those around it, but moving independently from one another.

Highly computationally expensive, they create environmental effects such as liquids, visible gasses and plasma effects such as fire, with uncanny accuracy. They are also often used in medical simulations as their nature allows them to simulate squidgy materials with a high fluid content soft tissue that behaves exactly as it should when a surgeon plays around with it either with tools or their fingers directly.

Droplet Robots: A Physical Particle Swarm
In virtual spaces, a particle swarm is a large number of independent, intelligently-behaving particles, each of which possesses certain properties, such as if one moves, the ones near it are pulled in a certain way, or twisted or turned around, etcetera. However they've always been limited solely to virtual spaces with no physical equivalent. That is the case no-longer.

Crowdsourcing Swarm Control
Rice University's Multi-Robot Systems Laboratory has created an online game designed solely to help further research into swarm control of simple robotic systems. Namely the quest to find truly effective control strategies for their own bespoke r-one swarm robotic system.

Robot Fish Leads Organic Fish
Alife research carried out using a robotic fish and a swarm of biological fish in a water tunnel, has concluded that biomimetic movement is key to social interaction with animals of all types; not just humans. If it swims like a leader of the shoal, it is the leader of the shoal.
