MIT's Flyfire project: a 3D hovering screen made from a zillion UAVs

You might have heard last week about Flyfire, a MIT concept that would use hundreds or thousands of little coaxial helis with LEDs to create a 3D screen in the sky. There was some confusion and the video was pulled, but now it's back and you can see what all the fuss is about. Pretty cool concept.

It is cool but won't be same as what you get your regular fireworks display IMHO

I would not want to fill out COA applications for 10,000 of these UAVs, Poor FAA guy that has to approve / reject them... Would they be approved for indoor use only??

At least there's interest in this. It's all Marcy 1 is going to be capable of.

A rf jammer makes most atractive raindrop animation when all UAVs flying. ;)
