Flying Robots Used to Build Structures (Not Hunt Us Down)

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 5th, 2011

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.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
