ETH's Raffaello D'Andrea and the coming "machine revolution"

Raffaello D’Andrea from ETH (home of PX4!) wowed them at Zurich Minds. From Robohub:

During the 20 minute presentation, Raffaello D’Andrea revealed some of the key concepts behind his group’s impressive demonstrations of quadrocopters jugglingthrowing and catching ballsdancing, and building structures – and illustrated them with live examples with quadrocopters flying on stage.
