Oh, not that impressive. I see a konect box on the tripod and the lit ball on the iris. If there was binocular vision processing on board and the balls were shot randomly at the copter, that would be impressive. And they have a leash on it ? ETH Zurich is light years ahead and they are using a $$ viacon system or what ever. On board optical systems are coming soon, hopefully just for obstacle avoidance and not targeting. The future is getting very interesting.

It is good to see IRIS used in trying to interact with the environment

I believe that the multirotors being able to manipulate / interact the environment will become an interesting application

Impressive :O , It's only a play but can have usefull aplications in agriculture in near future.
