Quadcopters by Night

Our devoted readers know about our love of quadcopters here at Digital Diner.  Well, here's a new one for you.  Some folks in Germany took 49 of them and attached lights to them and flew them in formation at night.  The result is something that I'm sure caused a few calls to authorities about UFOs.  I mean, you must admit that it looks a lot like the alien invasion that appears to be taking place in Cancun last week.  In addition to simulating aliens, I can certainly see that if they were to apply some of University of Pennsylvania's precision flying techniques, this could, at the very least, make for an interesting art project.  Fun stuff!

FYI, here are a few of our past quadcopter posts:

  1. Hey, this is cool and all, but someone should speak up about what was flying over SF twin peaks 11/03/2012 at 8:40 PM PST. A larger swarm than this video.
