recode brings to attention the Rovables, miniature robots that stick to your clothes thanks to magnetic wheels and drive around your body.

The researchers propose a number of possible use cases: A fleet of the robots could assemble on a wearer’s arm to create a display to watch video on the subway or tap a person on the shoulder when there’s new email. Or the wearable robots might roll up your sleeve or group into a safety light on your back when you’re riding a bicycle.
