The problem with swarm robots you need a lot of them. How many depends on the task. For any task there would be a minimal number required such as the BEECLUST algorithm you mentioned earlier. Building lots of little robots would be required which I think is beyond the finances of a hobbyist? The reason I would only ever be able to experiment with swarm virtual robots.

Although just science fiction small self replicating nanobots that could extract materials from their environment could "cluster" into a larger robot just like our biological bodies.  If we lose a cell (one of our swarm robots) no problem others just take over and more a created.
