Robots that don't only communicate, but actually combine their processing power. What will this mean for the internet of things?
Edit- consider this: the heroes land on a world to explore with a variety of smart gear. Unless they have communication nodes that strengthen a signal, the farther away from the ship they get, the less useful their gear. It will still work individually and as a group (as they piggyback on each other), but the ship's processing power will be out of reach. This post has been edited by derek_holland on Sep 15 2017, 15:56
