We present a model in which extremely simple agents, able only to detect how many other agents are in a sector directly in front of them, without ever knowing actual bearings towards any other agent, come to an agreement about a common center of rotation and synchronize their orientation to form a regular polygon or a set of regular polygons, depending on a simple predefined parameter, the agent's field of view.

Methods of controlling the location of such a swarm are discussed, and examples are given both in simulation and in the lab with actual robots.
