Meet the dazzling flying machines of the future

Raffaello D’Andrea is a Canadian/Italian/Swiss engineer, artist, and entrepreneur. He is a professor of dynamic systems and control at ETH Zurich.
He founded a company called Amazon Robotics, which is a Massachusetts-based company that manufactures mobile robotic fulfillment systems.

Check out this amazing film, where Raffaello D'Andrea demos his flying quadcopters robots. These quadcopters that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D'Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together.



Now the above film was of June 2013.. Below film is of 2016..

When you hear the word "drone," you probably think of something either very useful or very scary. But could they have aesthetic value? Autonomous systems expert Raffaello D'Andrea develops flying machines, and his latest projects are pushing the boundaries of autonomous flight — from a flying wing that can hover and recover from disturbance to an eight-propeller craft that's ambivalent to orientation ... to a swarm of tiny coordinated micro-quadcopters. Prepare to be dazzled by a dreamy, swirling array of flying machines as they dance like fireflies above the TED stage.
