We’ve shared various Quadrotor robot videos with you but we never expected to share one of the robots peacefully building a structure.
If you watch one of the previous videos we shared, it’s not too much of a stretch to envision a dystopian future with streets patrolled by flying robots. In the video above, however, European scientists demonstrate how the autonomous robots can be used to assemble a structure. Perhaps in a utopian future our robot overlords will be LEGO obsessed builders who construct elaborate luxury palaces for us.
