Vijay Kumar: Robots that fly ... and cooperate

Post by bigmoose » Mar 06 2012 7:17pm

Hope I didn't miss this posted before, but this was a really kewl video on Vijay Kumar: Robots that fly ... and cooperate! Electric quadracopters of course!

Freaky kewl, or freeky scarry, depending upon your perspective. The swarm formations blew my mind.

The ending is the robot playing James Bond Theme posted by Kingfish on this thread :

As a bonus here is the 18 mph running mechanical cheetah: What is coming next?

I wish that the robots had some wisdom so that they could "co-operate" for peace before the humans/s kill each other r and blow everyone up


i have more faith in the robots for stopping the stupid humans...???..
