In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Experiments performed with a team of nano quadrotors at the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania. Vehicles developed by KMel Robotics. Special thanks to Professor Daniel Lee for his support. Again, everytime I see something like this come out with a new breakthrough in Robotics research, I can't help but ask the obvious question:
Haven't these people heard of SkyNet? NO. Watch the Terminator series please...
25,000 people gathered in Bolotnaya Square in Moscow Saturday, were stunned to witness the strange hovering object directly above them. Some climbed trees to take pictures and get a closer look at the “UFO”.
Couldn't happen here right? Well, tell that to the Pakistanis who have been terrorized by unmanned arial millitary drones operated by the US government.
Every step it takes is one step closer to robot apocalypse. How about we stop inventing things that will some day rise up and kill us, scientists? Don't you guys watch movies? If anyone needs me, I'll be in my killer-robot proof bomb shelter.
In the far future water is the most valuable substance. Two space pirates are captured, sold to a princess, and recruited to help her find her father who disappeared when he found information dangerous to the rulers. A real Space Opera with sword fights, explosions, fighting robots, monsters, bar fights and time warps.
