This thing was around in 1998 subby and it's not any scarier now than it was then.

If you want scary, go look up the TED talk that has the guy with the quadcopters.

Awwww, it's really cute.

I see it can handle the environmental hazard of 2 mm of water, hopefully they'll have it up to 5 by the next grant cycle.

/I kid, sorta

Richard C Stanford: Awwww, it's really cute.


That's what I was thinking. It's like one of those little dogs that are so ugly it wraps back around and is cute again.

Reminds me of the spider bot things from Runaway, but creepier.

They should have taken the 9+ million in grant money and just given it to those folks that design and build "battle bots".

Nah, you want scary do a GIS for quadcopter injuries.

Quantum Apostrophe: Nah, you want scary do a GIS for quadcopter injuries.

Just your run of the mill lacerations from touching an edged object moving at a high speed.

// keep arms legs and heads away from the spinny parts

// same injuries used to happen to people with regular RC choppers and RC planes. Except a quadcopter gives them four times the chance of hurting themselves stupidly.

Don't be glib. It can also jump several inches off the ground.

Yes, it bests a Dalek, watch out Doctor Who.

But more seriously, when are we sending this thing to Titan? ;-)

On the other hand, the silicon types haven't gotten much better at handling EM fields than their organic brethren (haha, sterilization, not fun)...might want to mount the more important components inside a Faraday cage or something, or it won't know what it is by the time it gets past Jupiter's magnetic field (all hail the second most powerful degauss-er in our solar system!).

I heard it was originally designed as a baseball pitcher, but there was just something weird about the eyes....

My dogs (chow/retriever mix) would rip the legs off that thing in no time.

Yeah, this RC toy could scare me to DEATH! It's noisy and black and everything...
