Happy Holidays from the Flying Machine Arena!

Another Christmas/New Year's video. Enjoy!

This one was made using something like puppetry: an "actor" would hold a quadrocopter (props off) and move it. The motion would be reflected by another (flying) quadrocopter -- so you can do fun things like try to express emotions, walk around with some sort of a gait, look at things, etc.

Happy Holidays!

Nice - Always amazed by this crowd - however thinking about machines with personality makes me think about the Tachikoma robots in Ghost in the Shell - giving robots personality via "body" language is an interesting subject for sure!
