So apparently these guys are behind the hot open source python based robot arm motion control/planning software OpenRAVE right now in industry. They do it all, from individual arm movement, to workspace layout optimization, to multi arm coordination, all to cut down manufacturing time, and the time to reconfigure a line. Apparently they also provide the optimization as a cloud based service, where you can get them to run hardcore layout optimization simulation much faster at a fraction of the cost.

Strange design. May have merit on the small scale when the rotors don't weigh much, but scaling up is a challenge I would think...

Caltech Researchers Find Schooling Fish Offer New Ideas For Wind Farming
Interesting idea for using constructive interference from VAWT wind turbine shed vortexes to boost apparent wind for other turbines in the array, much the same way as schools of fish and perhaps flocks of birds scavenge the vortexes being shed by the lead animal to reduce their own drag and increase lift. Only problem is that you have to tune the turbine array layout to the predominant wind speed and direction, so off-spec wind could potentially hurt performance. Winglets on individual rotors may be more universal. But many places have fairly predictable wind patterns, so the layout trick still has merit.
