Quadrocopter Ball Juggling

Wow! This just made my jaws drop!(while thinking up 50 ideas) Autonomous flying helicopters that detect a ping pong ball and juggle it quite a few times. Watch the video to understand. Can I actually play ping pong with a robot finally? Will there be flying little robots to go fetch the hit ball back to me down the road? haha, this is awesome!

Also be sure to see the piano playing one.

    This really is quite amazing. I was so shocked! They remind me of Batteries Not Included and now I want one as a pet.
