Nano Quadrotors

As a thought exercise, imagine these as the precursors to new computing platforms serving as :

  • personal camcorder / communication interface
  • digital assistant / healthcare robot
  • big-brother / fear-machine
  • digital pet
  • hazard detection
  • crime prevention / personal escort (“walk” you home at night … triggers alarm siren if you enter a state of panic (optionally disabled  during midterms)
  • advertising platform / consume-consume-consume-!
  • teacher/student aid:
    – captures contents of whiteboard
    – delivers feedback/questions/messages to instructor
  • surround-sound system
  • interactive artpiece
  • performance medium
  • all of the above, and
  • beyond

wild times.
