This toy is so amazing that I consider making it possible to buy it for bitcoins.

Basically I would invest some money to buy a bunch of them, and then I would sell them back against bitcoins.

If you build a programmable kit, I would buy it. It would be useful as a scout bot for the robotic courier network.

I think for the robotic courier network you want a quadricopter.  Seems much more accurate flying, with a much bigger payload.

This one looks pretty neat :

I like it. About how much are they? Are they even for sale yet? I think I would pay $100, maybe more depending on details of durability and battery and such.

I think it will be sold at 75$.  6 to 10 minutes flight time.  The name of the stuff is "Avitron".  Now you know pretty much as much as I do.

Woow...  Indeed we have a winner.  This device has impressive stability, speed and acceleration.

All it needs now is a performant battery and a way to recharge it without human intervention.  Then you put some guns on it and we're in Terminator... Wink

Nice.  The important feature here is perching on a vertical surface, for it can allow the quadricopter to charge its battery.

Indeed all you have to do is to place an induction loop on this very area.

Verticality is important for it can dramatically reduce real estate price for the recharger building (One can use the main wall of a high tower).

Those stuffs will be in cities delivering pizzas soon Smiley !

So you have hexcopters, with some ability to charge itself and some ability to carry pizza....

Hopefully, a hexcopter won't get into an accident and kill someone.


Hmm, you could have a whole infrastructure. Mobile bot that carry batteries, charging station, and so on.

Imagine how cool that would be :  you're walking in the street, minding your own business, suddenly a pizza delivering robot accidentaly drops its payload.  And here you go :  you got nice ready-to-eat pizzas falling from the sky !  Wink

The only downside is that you will be chased by hexcopters.

I couldn't blame them. Pizza in 30 minutes or the 'bot gets tortured in Jabba's dungeon.

I'm not sure about assassination, because you need facial recognition, plus a very long  operating range in order to find your target.

But once you give those machines a good battery (maybe a fuel cell or something), then have it carry a gun and I fear for soldiers on battlefiled.

Pizza or assassination... I'm carrying an EMP gun at all times, good to avoid being killed and grab a free lunch while at it Smiley

Perhaps a vortex cannon might have enough power to knock one out of the air.

My search for something on vortex cannons also lead me to this image:
