Quadrotors: A Series of Amazing (And Slightly Disconcerting) Videos

I saw a video today on BB, and it reminded me of all the crazy quadrotor videos that have been emerging, over the past 12 months. Watching these things in action is both humbling and jaw-dropping, in equal measure.

Part of me is in awe at what we can achieve, through math and technology. Another part of me is just waiting for the day when an evil scientist puts some time towards these guys, and pulls off the first robotic bank heist or robotic assassination. And there’s yet another part of me that thinks all of this is fun and games, until the Singularity arrives.

From now on, every time I trip or drop something… I’m going to hear this gentle buzzing, ever so softly in the background.
