These proof-of-concept robots are the first step in a project that will hopefully lead to the development of modular robot blocks that are cable of generic lattice-based self-reconfiguration. This current generation of robots is limited to being able to "roll" in only one direction per cube, and is remote controlled. Future work will hopefully add the ability for a single robot to move in all three planes.
