London, Mar 2 (ANI): Tiny flying 'quadrobots', or mini helicopters designed by engineering students in the US - including an Indian origin laboratory member - have been programmed to play the James Bond theme tune.
The agile robots have been developed by the students at Pennsylvania University, who are helping to create a new breed of smarter, faster, and more flexible robots that mimic the swarming behaviours of birds, fish and insects, the Telegraph reported.
In the demonstration video, which has become an Internet sensation, the nanobots are fitted with wireless cameras and infrared lights that help their pilots plot their exact position in a precise way.
One of the university's robotics laboratory members, Vijay Kumar, presented the groundbreaking work at the TED2012 conference, an international gathering of people and ideas from technology, entertainment and design.
The team said that building robots that can move in unison without crashing into obstacles or one another is a critical skill for robot teams to develop, especially as they may one day be used to survey landscapes, build structures, or even play music. (ANI)
