Robots: The Robotic Swiss Quadrocopters

Have you ever used this Air Hogs toys? The ones that can float around when you place your hands. Those are pretty cool right? I’ve used those before and I guess my favorite one was the one that had a camera on it. You could fly around without people noticing and take a video or a snapshot. The disadvantages on those are that they have limited altitude. So you can’t be a James Bond or Alex Rider with all the cool gadget used for spying. Introducing the Robotic Swiss Quadrocopters. ETH Zurich Flying Machine Area had used the idea of embedding some tennis rackets on these robots and to allow them to have a tennis match.

You can watch the video below.

You can notice that these robots are competitive in one another to be the “best robot” in this tennis match. You can also see an impressive juggle by these robots.
