Tweenbots are an amusing project: small simple robots that rely on human strangers to reach their destinations, moving through cities. They demonstrate that city dwellers have a sense of fun and willingness to help. Bruce Schneier suggests that they represent a welcome divergence from anti-terror paranoia.

Right now, they exist only in New York.
