A very interesting architecture web site has a short blurb on a sculpture that will be assembled by quad copters.

So, how do they prevent the foam blocks from getting blown over by the quad?

And I also guess this is as usual with an external tracking device. I understand this allows cool things, but the reality is that autonomous drones will not be able to operate inside a 100k USD motion tracking grid.

simone: it all started like this, if everyone things like this, you wouldn't have mobile phones today ;)

@Simone:  You can actually buy a decent motion tracking system (eg. Natural Point's OptiTrack) for under $10k these days.
