Quadcopters Expanding The Possibilities

Technological innovation seems endless; we have taken steps towards the future where we will see things that a few years back, we could not have even imagined. Talking about the Quadcopters, these little flying robots can do almost anything you can imagine; from construction to cargo lifting, they can do anything. These little robots can even be used in the battlefield to monitor areas for bio-chemical and other signatures.

Here is a TED video where Vijay Kumar tells us about the build assembly and the movements of Quadcopters:

People are eager to learn more and more about these Quadcopters as they are fast, light weight and can move in almost every pattern conceivable.

Recently, a Swiss architecture firm Gramazio & Kohler, and Italian robot designer Raffaello D’Andrea, utilized these robots in some wonderful architectural construction. FRAC Centre in Orléans, France, hosted the first ever self-constructing exhibit in which a team of Quadcopters was synchronized together w.r.t. their movements and objective. In this exhibit, these little flying robots built a 6 meter high tower; 1,500 prefabricated polystyrene foam modules were put together to achieve this feat. Each and every block of this structure was intelligently carried by the robots and the final outcome of the structure was simply stunning.
