This paper presents early work on a new self-reconfigurable modular robot capable of independent locomotion. The prototype features three degrees of freedom, creating a spherical joint, and houses four connection surfaces allowing it to form arbitrary cubic lattice structures. The design is built around the recent HiGen connector, allowing for single-sided disconnect and enabling modules to rotate freely in place within a lattice position.
