Wow: Flying robot 'quadrocopters' juggle ball

As humanity continues to propel itself toward the inevitable robot apocalypse, it's nice to know our future machine masters will at least be able to keep us entertained.

The next step on the road to robo-domination is, apparently, juggling. From Switzerland's Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control comes this video of flying robots (quadrocopters) juggling a ball individually and in teams.

The quadrocopters in the video are operated by humans (for now). They do, however, have onboard computers and are able to fly themselves if properly programmed. As humanity continues to propel itself toward the inevitable robot apocalypse, it's nice to know our future machine masters will at least be able to keep us entertained.

Also, it is a pretty cool video. Check out how the quadrocopters work in the video below.
