Robots learn to reproduce...

Robotcubea120505 ...for a given value of reproduce in any case: looks like scientists at Cornell University are the first develop a robot that can reproduce itself. Now before you start to dig out all your old Demon Seed tapes, the robots are still quite basic, consisting of a series of small plastic cubes. Each cube has a brain that holds blue prints of the towers that the cubes can combine to build. Given new cubes, the brains automatically use them to form copies of themselves, using a combination of magnets and motors. Pretty cool, but not quite Blade Runner yet. If you're on broadband, check out the university page with the video link on it: pretty cool.
