Why yes, the cheap factor makes this design suitable for experimenting with swarm

robotics. It's easy to build with easy to find, off­ the shelf parts or easy to

mass­produce. It could be sold in kits or preassembled. Due to the open

source and open hardware nature of this project, you or anyone else can

copy the design and build one at home or integrate it in a industrial design,

free of charge and without restrictions.
