At that speed, will they be able to pull out in time?

So as I am walking to my car in the parking garage, I might get buzzed by a drone? When Skynet activates, MIT will be one of the culprits.

Interesting segue, there's an article in the Toronto Star on the use of drones in North Americans airspace, and how a predator drone was used to take down a rural farming family. What the hell are we doing? Has it come to watching every single move we make now?

But can the robot go for the power regulator on the north tower while already being on its way out?

I'm so glad no one made a reference...

Goddamnit. :P

Should design it more Osprey like so it can hover as well a have speed.
Also doing a figure eight is neat and all, but drive some cars our put obstacles in its way. I'd like to see how it reacts and chooses a new path.

Your homeowners insurance will give you a discount if you install monitoring cameras inside your home, for your protection.

Video: Here we demonstrate the accuracy and reliability of the system. In places, the parking garage is less than 2.5 meters from floor to ceiling.
Wedge: That's impossible! Even for a computer.
Luke: It's not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters.

It'll be just like Beggar's Canyon back home!

Hey, Poindexter! Get one of these!

The Goshawk is the most amazing thing you will ever see flying. Confined spaces at high speeds? This is your bird.

Give it a 3-D recall scan with enough memory to know when it has returned to a point it can circumvent and navigate surely

Meh, wake me when your AI can pick a VP candidate that appeals to the 99%ers.

The POV video reminded me of the special bullet from the SF movie "Runaway", starring Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. I can see this getting used in a movie chase sequence soon. And yes, this will make a hell of a weapon for flying down into a bunker and knocking on the head man's door before going boom.

I'm betting this is just the first iteration of the technology. given more time and development it could get better. Bear in mind that they also said they are using a processor with the processing power of whats found in netbooks. Give it an intel i-series processor or any of the more beefy processors (with balanced out weight and power issues) and they could have that thing thinking on the fly.

Also it should be noted, that after the mechanical engineering parts are ironed out, you're only limited by the coding powers and creativity of the programmers....which is why automation engineers/coders/programmers get my supreme props. Chemical engineering (what I do) is a cake walk compared to the shiat that they have to dream up.

I see no way something like this could be weaponized.

The narrator mentioned that this is being done with hovering vehicles, sounded like they were concentrating on plane type thingys.

Planes typically require less fuel.
