  2. bertram49 on March 22, 2021 at 12:32 am

    My oh my how overproduced Ted is now… Geez, they could let us just process the info rather than assault us with movie music the whole time.

  3. Dean C. on March 22, 2021 at 12:33 am

    DARPA will kill us.

  4. Олег Темпов on March 22, 2021 at 12:36 am

    That false smile… I will smile when his children will hide from drones somewhere in the woods.

    Slaughterbots

  10. JACK The All-Seeing Eye on March 22, 2021 at 12:47 am

    This is how SLAUGHTER BOTS starts……..

  11. Soe Min Wai Yan on March 22, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Now I know who is mysterio

  12. TNI Visitor on March 22, 2021 at 12:49 am

  13. Bryan O'connor on March 22, 2021 at 12:49 am

    Like dr Xavier and magneto

  14. Speedy O on March 22, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Ok screw having kids just get drones

  15. Stuart O'Neill on March 22, 2021 at 12:52 am

    How could you not like that…why isn’t this on the news!

  16. 1220b on March 22, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Either make them play the Close Encounters alien music, or use them as weapons.

  17. Lee Maitland on March 22, 2021 at 12:54 am

    All very pretty until each one is carrying a grenade. I am an engineer and really enjoy technological advancements, I appreciate all that technology has done for us but I am aware that we are just not ready for some innovations. Pesticides have saved countless lives yet given us chemical weapons, nuclear power promised us limitless energy, yet it has created the ever present possibility of nuclear holocaust, fossil fuels have laid the foundation for the society that we live in, yet that society has been found to be unsustainable and causing its own destruction.

    Responsibility and proper risk assessment, this technology could be misused by anyone in so many ways (the main culprits are our own governments, claiming the other guy is building them so we have to too, it’s not for protection from them, its a show of power to us their subordinates). So please, slow down on the engineering of existential threats, perhaps commit your skills and hours to bettering the world.

    who saw black mirror series ? AI bees Episode ?

  19. Aldimiro da Silva on March 22, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Como é que eles fazem isso?

  20. Iwan walimban on March 22, 2021 at 1:03 am

    amasing….

  21. Coração Galáctico on March 22, 2021 at 1:06 am

    😍✨🌈

  22. New Cosmos TV on March 22, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Wow… 😳😯

  23. Anonymous on March 22, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Olhas os drones da NOW ai

  24. J's Garage on March 22, 2021 at 1:07 am

    Back stage there’s like 10 drone operators 😂

  25. slow tuber on March 22, 2021 at 1:08 am

    this seems the future like for everything

  26. Manuel Schulz on March 22, 2021 at 1:12 am

    Are these drones really reacting on his gestures and interacting with their enviroment or is this just a programmed show?

  27. Chris Jones on March 22, 2021 at 1:13 am

    Magic is real though, otherwise they would never have had a word for it

  28. Albertilius Fornilius on March 22, 2021 at 1:14 am

    How will solve hunger in Africa these machines or the resources we are dedicating to them?

  29. JACK The All-Seeing Eye on March 22, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Facial recognition to acquire target…..dna sampling from target expelled microdroplets…ambient chaotic movement to foil snipers/lasers….shaped explosive charge to blow a hole through targets skull as it dives for contact…..
    by the thousands

  30. {ChefOreo } on March 22, 2021 at 1:14 am

    batteries not included 1987

  31. Mike Duran on March 22, 2021 at 1:15 am

    The dark side to this tech is what will change the aspect of war. It already is starting to. Drone swarms are already equipped with guns, bombs and lasers.

  32. Jahmal Dujon on March 22, 2021 at 1:16 am

    At 1:16 the drones reacted before he gave any signal, seems he isn’t controlling them.

  33. Joseph Roseen on March 22, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Very cool but they appear to be scripted not reacting to him

  34. He will never leave me. on March 22, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Am I the only one that thinks that they will use the drones against the humans ???

  35. Mikowacomet on March 22, 2021 at 1:18 am

    These will be hunting humans soon enough. This technology is always for the elite to oppress

  36. Jimmy Bon on March 22, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Killer robot drones…

  37. Balala on March 22, 2021 at 1:22 am

    DO NOT GIVE THEM WEAPONS
    YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THAT HAPPENED

  38. Sush Mag on March 22, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Now imagine a 100x more drones than this and each one with an explosive attached to it. The future of warfare is going to be scary.

  39. Adrian Vitier on March 22, 2021 at 1:23 am

    What type of drones are those

  40. Aviral Singhal on March 22, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Not in 2020 man. Not in 2020.

  41. yamkelani yamja on March 22, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Where can I find this Drone code

  42. Linas Dagys on March 22, 2021 at 1:24 am

    It was so enjoyable and funny to watch that man playing with his drones. I think he didn’t forgotten his childhood inside of him 😀 😀

  43. Truthspoon on March 22, 2021 at 1:24 am

    Today they are our friends, but one day they will turn on us.

  44. son so on March 22, 2021 at 1:25 am

    This is scary cool.

  45. RichyRichmondd on March 22, 2021 at 1:26 am

    Anyone here from BGT ? 😆😆

  46. Jonathan Tejada on March 22, 2021 at 1:27 am

    Jim Carey did it better in sonic

  47. Lucio José Patrocínio Filho on March 22, 2021 at 1:28 am

    just need a good design to become a successful product.

  48. nole 89 on March 22, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Is this real? It looks eerily like slaughterbots

  49. Page Nolan on March 22, 2021 at 1:30 am

    Wow they look like Tinkerbell fairies.

  50. Tanmay Thombre on March 22, 2021 at 1:31 am
