Power source will still be the limiting factor.

No moving parts... It contains a flywheel? ??????

No EXTERNAL moving parts.

/and yea dancing cubes that know how to stick together...  any room left in there to do any actual thing?

Future thought...
..100's of thousands of (more advanced versions of) these.
..Program "master floor plan" into all cubes via wireless instructions.
..Floor plan will be house/structure you create on PC or replica design you want to emulate. (Program will notify you of any design issues beforehand via 3-D modeling function in software.)
..Watch those farkers build the whole freakin' structure.
..When finished stacking on each other, give wireless command for them to all self-destruct and let out their internal, adhesive glue that will permanently bond them all together.
..Let sit overnight to dry.

/no, I didn't think this all the way through

I'm having the strangest "Portal" flashback... I keep expecting GLADOS to pipe in..

Yes, they seem so multifunctional. Turning and stuff. Yes sir, they look really versatile.

mrbach: Yes, they seem so multifunctional. Turning and stuff. Yes sir, they look really versatile.

Finite element analysis.
Almost anything can be modeled by an assembly of small cubes.

And something built from those would be fault-tolerant as all get-out.
200 battery units
50 motor units
10 vision units
10 auditory units
Great for hostile environments - like Fukishima and Chernobyl.

Think about how they can be reconfigured if you're working the aftermath of an earthquake - send one in configured as a snake - when it finds a person, it reconfigures to support their spine or relieve pressure on a crushed limb.

Well, the limiting factor is that they can't do anything other than maybe play a large real-world Tetris on your desk.

So... give them OLED displays on the sides and make a self-assembling/transitioning Minecraft landscape?

Then they mix this with nanotechnology...

inject it into a vein.

Then they find the part that is failing.

Cut it out and then configure into the part that was malfunctioning.

Those of us who have studied The Time Cube are not surprised.  The truth of the cube has existed for billions of years, but only now have scientists come to realize its power.
