Robots that fly … and cooperate: Vijay Kumar on

Here’s the third talk from TED2012 (still going on). Yestrday, Vijay Kumar wowed the TED audience with his (and his team’s) flying quadrotors, small, agile robots that swarm, sense each other, and form ad hoc teams, and he premiered a very special music video — created specially for TED —  which has gone viral less than a day after posting. (Recorded at TED2012, February 2012, in Long Beach, California. Duration: 16:47)
