Quadcopter Juggling?!

Yes, juggling.  But that is a mere side note.
This recent TED Talk is ASTOUNDING!
Do not miss it.

From the video description:
"In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D'Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D'Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together -- and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of Kinect-controlled quads."

Awwwww. The poor little damaged copter. The bad man HURT it! Sad He is wicked and we hatez him!

Smile

This is pretty amazing, tho'. Thanks for ferreting out these excellent vids, Tom. Imagine -- using slightly larger copters holding a net to rescue a person falling from the roof of a building... or... instead of a rescue swimmer at sea... indeed, for all sorts of rescues without endangering other human beings.

Very very cool.
