A squadron of tiny quadcopters: must-see video!

Feb 29, 2012 4 Comments by

Picture this: a nano quadcopter that’s fast and agile. Then multiply it by 20, and imagine this tiny squadron flying in formation, performing tasks and doing aerobatic maneuvers–together. In a video from the GRASP Lab of the University of Pennsylvania, air vehicles developed by KMel Robotics put on an amazing show. I promise that this video will blow your mind!

    This is very cool. If they can come out with something like this for the public masses, they will sell out in a split second. I know I want a few lol.

    Man! I can already see thousands of those things patrolling the city now. The govt is considering laws that allow drones to fly surveillance and such inside the USA now. I hadn’t thought of this kind of drone though. Just think how hard it would be to run and hide from these things.

    Thanks for the link!

    I m new to this innovation.
    Does anyone know if there is a common name for these multi-propellar helicopter that amazon is starting to use for package deliveries?
    Some magazines call them phantoms while others call them quadra…..which makes hard to search on net. Thanks
