THINK that robots that march on no matter how many limbs they lose are just for Terminator films? Think again. A team of roboticists has developed software that allows a modular robot to adapt when one part stops working. David Johan Christensen at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, and colleagues, simulated a quadruped robot constructed from a dozen Roombots – identical rounded robots that can combine to form a variety of shapes (see picture). In the simulation,
