The Robotic Swarm

February 1st, 2012 | Robot

Check out this swarm of flying nano-quadrators developed by the robotics team from University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Lab.  It is truly eerie/amazing to see the team of robots jetting around through the air in perfect formation.  And it seems only a matter of time before you’ll find these outfitted with cameras roaming the city streets or maybe with machine guns patrolling a war zone.  They can fly in 3-dimensions and even avoid obstacles.  I’m impressed!

I would also like to add that this robotic swarm has a Space Invaders/Galaga feel to it.  I’m seeing a real-world version of these games in the near future!
