Friday Fun Stuff Edition III: Quadrocopters, Robo-Cheetahs and Invisible Cars!
Do you follow us on Twitter yet? If not, you should – and then you will be able to wow your friends with awesomeness. Take for example, Robot Quadrotors. They are cutting edge flying machines, that will one day watch you and supress you when you are deemed a threat to civil order. But for now they do awesome stuff like fly in formation and perform James Bond theme like a tiny, autonomous orchestra!
“These flying quadrotors are completely autonomous, meaning humans are not controlling them; rather they are controlled by a computer programed with instructions to play the instruments. Penn’s School of Engineering and Applied Science is home to some of the most innovative robotics research on the planet, much of it coming out of the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Lab.”
