AN INTRIGUING LOOK AT THE FUTURE
When you hear the word "drone," you probably think of something either very useful or very scary. But could they have aesthetic value? Autonomous systems expert Raffaello D'Andrea develops flying machines, and his latest projects push the boundaries of autonomous flight -- from a flying wing that can hover and recover from disturbance to an eight-propeller craft that's ambivalent to orientation ... to a swarm of tiny coordinated micro-quadcopters. Prepare to be dazzled by a dreamy, swirling array of flying machines as they dance like fireflies above the TED stage. And something to ponder: When did "model airplanes" become "drones" ... and WHY?
Click HERE to see Raffaello D'Andrea's talk, which lasts about 12 minutes.
