Computer modeled using swarms of soldier crabs:
Computer scientists at Kobe University in Japan have built
a computer that draws inspiration from the swarming behavior
of soldier crabs.
The computer is based on theories from the early 1980s that examined the possibility of building a computer out of billiard balls. Proposed by Edward
Fredkin and Tommaso Toffoli, the mechanical computer was based on
Newtonian dynamics and relied on the motion of billiard balls in an idealized, friction-free environment instead of electronic signals
like a conventional computer.
