The accessibility of the quad-rotor design is allowing many developers to work with autonomous functionality that highlights the stability and dexterity of these flying machines. This video shows two of the bots flying and juggling a ball between them. The most impressive part, all this is done using sensors on the flying robots without any human input. The robot bumps the ball, and then is able to stabilize and get in position for the next bump. This really could be the future of flight if this technology can be effectively scaled up. If not, these would make the most awesome toys!
