Stigmergic ant

“Stigmergic ant that symbolises the design methodology of prototyping by leaving a trace”

This robotic ant or Stigmergic ant, was developed as a mascot of the Industrial Design Center, promoting its expertise in design and prototyping. The Stigmergic Design methodology that is being used at the IDC is symbolized by an ant that leaves its trace (stigmergy) that can be picked up by others. In this concept the user can create a path, that is followed by the ant, the ant will leave traces in the form of candy (M&Ms) that can be picked up by others.
