Quadrotors Play the James Bond Theme Song

by Conner Flynn

It seems that quadrocopters can do just about anything. Like the other robots, they are busy taking our jobs. In this case, they are getting ready to put conductors and orchestras out of business. They’ve hijacked the James Bond theme and have Moneypenny and Q tied up in the back!

The fun began when students from Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science GRASP labs discovered that they could make these flying things play music. They set up some instruments and let the quadrocopters loose to perform the James Bond theme. These copters are controlled by a computer programmed with instructions to fly to the proper instruments and play them, and it’s pretty amazing to watch:

Thankfully none of the ‘bots fires at your screen in the end making it go blood red. That would be bad.
