And for a healthy dose of fun Friday edu-tainment, we cannot get over this amazing video! Having premiered at the recent TED2012 Conference in Long Beach, California, this fascinating video (and the robot quadrotors jamming out) were made by a Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science team lead by Deputy Dean for Education and GRASP (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception) lab member, Vijay Kumar.
The flying robot quadrotor musicians are being controlled by a computer that is programmed with instruction on how to play the included instruments: a keyboard, drums and maracas, a cymbal, and the debut of an adapted guitar built from a couch frame. (Like we said, pretty darn impressive!)
Happy Friday, everyone!
