If anyone's going to Google's I/O conference this week in San Francisco, make sure to check out the "Cloud Robotics" session on Wed. You might see something interesting from the DIY Drones dev team ;-)

 

Cloud Robotics

May 11, 10:45AM – 11:45AM / Room 5

Robots are all around us, although they are easily camouflaged. We describe how we can accelerate the pace of robotics research and development and make high functioning robots affordable and universally accessible.

 

Hint: Note the Android tag on the session.

I envision an armada of thousands and thousands of Google Easystar drones that one can rent by the hour and all the flightpaths are fully indexed and searchable on the interwebs.


You will also be required to tow an adwords streamer after your drone... :-)

Maybe the team has created an app to let me drop eggs on the neighbors from my phone?

 

Can't wait to see what you've come up with!

 

"You will also be required to tow an adwords streamer after your drone... :-) "  Nice...  ;)

The $550 is a bit steep.  Obviously there's no shortage of Google Apps developers.

I answer myself

If you look video at 19:40 mn, you will see a quadrotor flying indoor with altitude control using Kinect data.

This was part of the ROS 3D contest from Berkeley University
