    Mantrid's drones became real



    Autonomous flying drones build up a structure.

    There is a german article with an english video:

    It's amazing how some of the most visionary ideas of scifi become real within a few decades.

    If only Mantrid could see this! :cry:

    Ich schlage vor, dass wir uns weitere Unannehmlichkeiten ersparen und ihn auf der Stelle wieder ins All hinausbef?rdern.

    Awesome. Now all we need is for Dieter Laser to control them with his mind.
    Turns out Gin is still alive. Dying but not dead yet. I hope he is saved.

    Thank you, Gehirn, for this info, I already translated it in my new sci-fi site in bulgarian :) Would post a link, but it's in bulgarian anyway, besides it's not quite done yet.

    BTW, besides Mantrid-Drones, can anyone think of an analogy of these quadrocopters in another sci-fi show?

    This is really quite interesing. It seems like a kind of swarm intelligence, knowing where each other are, what they are doing and figuring out how to interace with each other.
    I'm studying machine intelligence/learning at Uni, this might be a good subject to write about. :)
