Robot self-reassembles after being kicked apart



This is from TR-100 award-winner Mark Lim's work at the GRASP lab @ U. Penn. (Found this on Valleywag, whose headline was, "Scientists create self-regenerating robot that's obviously going to kill us all.")

Oh, but the best part is in the last few seconds of the video, when after all that amazing maneuvering, it stands up and the narrator says "... and continues its task" -- and then it falls over out of nowhere! :) (And the narrator can't help but laugh. Love it.)
