https://www.yahoo.com/news/pentagon-successfully-tests-micro-drone-swarm-024318993.html I guess "micro" is relative they're apparently 16cm long. Either way, pretty sure they took this quote from a Michael Crichton book, word for word: "The micro-drones demonstrated advanced swarm behaviors such as collective decision-making, adaptive formation flying and self-healing," it said. "Perdix are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals, they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature," said William Roper, director of the Pentagon's Strategic Capabilities Office. "Because every Perdix communicates and collaborates with every other Perdix, the swarm has no leader and can gracefully adapt to drones entering or exiting the team." Unsurprisingly it did not end well for most of the people in the book.
