There seems to be no shortage of what quadrocopters can do these days, and recently the students from Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science recently found out how to make them play music. They set up a whole bunch of instruments in room, and let loose a swarm of quadrocopters to perform the James Bond theme song on them. The copters are said to be completely autonomous and are controlled by a computer programmed with instructions to play the instruments. Nothing short of impressive, the video demonstration shown above is a sight to behold. Pretty amazing stuff if you ask me, now let’s make sure those robots don’t get out of control.
