Watch this: quadrocopters perform amazing pole-catching acrobatics

Quadrocopters can do more than take part in elaborate dances — they’re making the jump into gymnastics. Dario Brescianini, a student at ETH Zurich’s Institute for Dynamic Systems and Controls, has programmed the mini-drones to perform stunts and juggle poles between themselves. It all takes place in ETH Zurich’s Flying Machine Arena, a space decked out with a motion capture system and wireless networking to provide the perfect testing ground for tiny airborne vehicles.

Chainsaw robot programmed to carve two stools from a single log

A chainsaw robot visited Cologne last week for a single purpose: to carve stools. The robot is nameless, but the furniture it produces on its own is called the 7xStool, which was designed by Tibor Weissmahr and Tom Pawlofsky. The latter programmed the robot to carve two 7xStools from a single log, and the robot performed this feat twice a day during live performances for visitors to Passagen 2013 design week.
