Strength In Numbers: Swarming Quadrocopters

February 1, 2012


Seen here practicing a stealth attack on a mock-up of your bedroom window, a group of autonomous quadrocopters at The University of Pennsylvania's GRASP Lab swarm their target. Now -- just imagine if it had been you sleeping on the other side of that window. Not a pretty picture, is it? It's not. And I'm not just saying that because your room's a mess and you sleep in the nude, but that certainly doesn't help the picture my mind's trying to paint right now. DAMMIT BRAIN, LESS PEEN! Per random Youtube commenter:

I thought the future would bring us good stuff like jet packs and robot prostitutes. Instead we get swarms of miniature assassin drones. Crap.

WHOA WHOA WHOA -- since when are robot prostitutes "good stuff"? Listen: if you want to have sex with a bunch of nuts and bolts, that's your business, but don't go around acting like we ALL want to. God, It's not like f***ing dinos, bro.

Hit the jump for the video. Bonus 'flying in a figure-8' and smiley-face formations at the very end.


Thanks to G, sam James, Gweezer and christopher, who know what I like but sent me this anyways. No really, thanks a lot guys. Send me your home addresses, I've got something for you.
