Mar 29 2011Autonomous Quadrocopters Play Ping-Pong
Forrest could take 'em.
This is a video from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of two autonomous quadrocopters playing ping-pong (or table tennis, but NOT table pennis, which is what you play when you want to clear out a dinner party). So yeah, they want to take over our recreational sports now. "Pfft, who cares -- it's ping-pong." WHO CARES IT'S PING-PONG?! HAVEN'T YOU HEARD OF THE DOMINO EFFECT? One minute it's ping-pong, and the next it's badminton and croquet! God forbid they ever find out about lawn darts. Just sayin', you ever played a robot in lawn darts before? Obviously not, you're alive to read this.
Hit the jump for scary.
