I should have posted this in the forums just to spite whoever thought that was a good idea.
...You know... like those kids that do that. Funny, right? LAWL!!!
Next blog will be about coat hangers. Stay tuned.
I'm sure you've all thought about manhacks, those terrifying red-eyed razor-blade drones from Half-Life 2. Maybe you thought about how awesome their design was, or how useful their real-life implementation could be. Well, guess what? They exist now!
Some fine gentlemen at the GRASP Lab, at the University of Pennsylvania have created the "Aggressive Quadrotor," an autonomous (yeah - hands free, not remote controlled) flying nightmare, that somehow gives off a sound more ominous than the Half-Life manhacks. Basically, these guys tell the thing the general path that they want it to follow, and then it tackles any obstacle in the way to get there. Throw a hula-hoop at it? It will literally time itself so that it can pass through the ring without bumping the edge.
"Wait! I don't wanna waste the battery! I wanna throw it from the front-lines into a house full of terrorists!"
Well, sure thing. You can kick this thing like a soccer-ball, and - just like the manhack - will adjust itself mid-air to full stability.
But hey, I'm not one to tease people about such things, so here's a video of it getting ready to fly through some warehouse windows and cut up some rebels:
My first video coming two weeks from now. Sorry for the delay, but my parents need to send me my PS3, and... they haven't yet.
Check out my previous blog entry if you don't know what I'm talking about. Er... the "I Complete Your Challenge" Blog, not the last few.
"No interest eh? I can tell you're not going to last long here..."
