uhm... what about the different types of terrain, if it's made for medical purposes... if like a kid got shot in the head.... they... would prolly die 15 minutes into being dragged across the sidewalk to the hospital instead of getting a paramedic or something...i mean... nice concept, but the person would get damaged even more from being dragged across the ground or floor!.. kindof stupid

The whole concept about this thing is to show robots WORKING IN COOPERATION to get something done - align themselves in equal-sized rows, then pull together in ONE direction without bumping into each other.

They probably change colors to make it easier for other robots (who probably have sensors to detect color? I don't know) or the audience, that they have already attached themselves to a string of other robots.

Having 20 little robots that can pull 1kg of weight each (20kg total if they work together) can be superior to having 1 machine that can pull 20kg weight, for obvious reasons (saving energy if there are loads lighter than 20kg, saving time if there are for example 2 loads, 10 kg each).

It`s not rocket science.
