Inspired by Tony Cheetham's success with the Only Human comic strip, Jim Brown's Swirling Brain came up with the idea of a robot-related comic strip of his own. The first installment of Emergent Behavior was posted this morning. Emergent Behavior has a cast of regular characters who are struggling to get grants to fund their robotics research. As to whether the most interesting behaviors will emerge from the robots or the humans, we'll let the reader be the judge. Who knew so many roboticists were also aspiring comic strip authors?
