The University of Pennsylvania's GRASP Lab, in an attempt to subdue me so I don't bulldoze their building down, has posted a one minute video of their autonomous quadrocopters crashing into each other and all around failing at robotic life. I found it, dare I say, humorous? "There's nothing funny about robots, GW -- you taught me that." I did, and that was just a test to make sure you hadn't forgotten. You keep it up and you're on track to become a lieutenant in my anti-robotics army. "Really?!" F*** no, you're laser-fodder and you know it. It is your density. Now make like a tree and get outta here.
Hit the jump for a minute of high-flying fail.
Thanks to Aaron and Fish Man, who like their autonomous quadrocopters how they like their Concorde jets: not flying anymore.
Right Through Your Open Window: Autonomous Plane Barrel Rolls Through Obstacles Less Wide Than WingspanThis is some video captured by a group of human-haters at MIT who have programmed a model airplane to be able to autonomously avoid obstacles by pitching and rolling itself to safety. Watching the thing move in real-time is nuts because that thing adjusts itself FAST. Way fas... / Continue →

I'll Believe It When I'm Shooting Them Out Of The Sky: Iffy Autonomous Quadrocopter Taco Delivery ServiceThose aren't f***ing tacos -- that's a clown nose, dummy! Allegedly (and I stress allegedly HARD and in a real husky voice that makes you weak in the knees and pee a little), a startup in San Francisco wants to sell Mexican food and make deliveries with the use of an autonomou... / Continue →
