Robots that can fly and co-operate

I am patriotic about India and that’s the reason which made me watch this TED talk. Because this TED talk is by Dr.Vijay Kumar. His name in itself intrigued me to know more about his talk and his creations.

Mr.Vijay Kumar talks about agile, autonomous robots in this video. His creations are something beyond my understanding but i just cannot help myself watching it again and again. It’s awesome.You should also enjoy the awesome visual treat by just not watching the talk but by experiencing it. He explains the functioning of these robots and its applications in various fields. The most interesting aspect is that these robots can function like ants when it comes to carrying a payload which is beyond a single robot’s capability. They can co-operate with the other robots and finish the given task. These robots can even map the area in which they travel.

The high light of this video is the musical finish[14.30 onwards]. I cannot end this blog post without mentioning the creators of these robots Alex Kushleyev and Daniel Mellinger. OMG, the music is still lingering in my head.

Have fun watching the video and get inspired to build or use such robots.
