LumiBots are small, autonomous robots that can leave glowing traces. The robots are equipped with a UV LED at their tail which leaves a glowing trail on phosphorescent sheet. The traces do not only create generative images which tell the story of the robots' movements, but have a deeper meaning for the lumiBots: With their light sensors, they can follow the other robots' as well as their own trails, and amplify them, thus creating an ant-trail-like mechanism luring more and more robots on the same path.
