The astounding athletic power of quadcopters | Raffaello D'Andrea

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.

    I don’t want a quad that becomes self aware and decides in 12 nano-seconds that humans are undesirable variables. I want a toaster… can’t wait for that Colossus Quad to come out though, sounds pretty cool!
