Swarming Nano QuadrotorsPosted: February 6, 2012
These quadrotors are amazing. It begins with the simple statement, “we developed a nano quadrotor capable of agile flight.” And agile is right. I love the fact that you can just huck this up into the air, turn it on, and its starts flying. Plus, their ability to fly in formation is both beautiful and honestly, a little spooky.
Speaking of spooky, this video also kinda freaks me out as I think about how the military might use something like this – I can imagine for example a ton of these being dumped out of the back of a plane and at 200 hundred feet them all turning on and converging on a target or dispersing to lots of different targets. Or am I just being paranoid?
