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.
