Just chillin'...before tearing off at incredible speed.
What's black, spherical, and can run you down at 40 mph? Japan's mini Death Star, of course. The hovering drone was demonstrated at a tech expo in Japan recently
, zipping around like a hummingbird and showing off its stability, which is maintained by three gyroscopes. Even if it hits a wall or is whacked by a bystander, the thing hardly pauses. The drone's possible uses include reconnaissance and rescue, the presenter for the Defense Ministry remarked. The whole thing weighs just 350 grams and was built from commercially available parts at a cost of about $1400. You heard me---commercially available parts. So what are you waiting for? http://youtu.be/pF0uLnMoQZA [via PopSci
