“Sticks” by Doug Back consists of a number of geared down stepper motors with fiberglass sticks mounted on shafts. If a stick touches another, it reverses directions as if they are shy to the touch, ultimately resulting in a common pattern that allows them to rotate freely. Pretty cool idea for a simple autonomous interactive bot.
