Particle Swarm Optimisation

Particle swarm optimisation or PSO is a type of crowd simulation algorithm, that is used to create the optimal movements for a swarm of bound-together particles such as people, atoms, or cells under a set of interaction circumstances. It is meant to find the cheapest route in terms of computation for a given effect.

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.
