This Sensorless Flying Robot Is Like a Drunken Speeder Bike Orb

After putting its rovers on Mars, Nasa's Jet Propulsion Lab showed the world that billion dollar hardware isn't always the answer. And researchers at the EPFL are taking the same technology-on-the-cheap approach with a low-cost autonomous flying drone that simply bumps and crashes into everything in its path instead… »10/30/13 11:40am10/30/13 11:40am

Watch Two Planes Collide, Get Stuck Together in Mid-Air and Somehow Separate Before Landing Safely

If I was a pilot and I saw a plane headed straight toward me, I'd figure I was doomed. If I was a pilot and I saw a plane stuck to my own plane, I'd figure we were both doomed. Luckily for these two pilots in Holland, who hit each other in mid-air and then found themselves stuck to one another, they managed to pull… »9/10/12 9:30pm9/10/12 9:30pm
