We Love Quadrotors, Even When They Fail

Posted on 04/07/2011 by carlos-31 in Prototypes
In previous posts, we reported on the aggressive quad-rotors from the University of Pennsylvania which are capable of doing amazing things quite effortlessly. Achieving such impressive results required  a lot of hard work,  testing and trial-and-error. The video below focuses on the "error" part. Enjoy the bloopers! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVrxvqYlCDs

In order to finish on a more "productive" note, see the video below explaining how the Kinect can be used to control these flying robots from the Flying Machine Arena at the ETH Zurich. Watch it until the end for added fun.
