The War Room

No, its not what you think. I watched this on LL and it got me thinking about just what the worlds powers have under development. I can see this technology useful for the unmanned drones they are flying around these days.

Autonomous helicopter with four engines (Quadrotor). Artificial Swarm Intelligence in Nano Robotic Systems. Nano Quadrotors at the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania. Vehicles developed by KMel Robotics.

The quadricopter passes easily through windows in a vertical position regardless of the angle of the opening. It does so at a high speed and stabilizes itself the right way up or upside down immediately after.

There could be many applications for this type of drone: military intelligence, for the police, or even for natural disasters such as the collapse of buildings.

Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multirobot systems which consist of large numbers of mostly simple physical robots. It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment. This approach emerged on the field of artificial swarm intelligence, as well as the biological studies of insects, ants and other fields in nature, where swarm behaviour occurs.

and perhaps technology like this can help us explore new planet surfaces.

will add stuff as I find it.


The weak are meat the strong do eat...
Sound like a swarm of angry bees.Cool as hell but kind of creepy at the same time.


Yeah, imagine one armed and chasing you ? I saw a vid of them building a wall in a huge room but I'm stuffed if I can find it.

One hell, it's the idea of a swarm of these working in unison that's creepy to me. Imagine they are equipped with a poison and one stick of a needle is all it would take. That's just scary. I'd need a bigger fly swatter.
