Fliegen Fantastic HexaKopter Video - Der Meister Of The Sky!

 You only have to watch a minute of this video to be blown away by how cool the HexaKopter is, but I highly recommend you watch the whole the 11:27.  This video has exploded on the internet the last few days, and I admit I don't know much about the HexaKopter, but my searching around showed several of the multi-motor all thruster machines being flown by people.  What makes this one from German Holger Buss so special is the software and hardware mix on the machine that allows for a variety of awesome capabilities (watch the vid).   

 It's simultaneously one of the coolest and scariest things I've ever seen!  Cool cuz it flies incredibly well, with loads of useful applications quickly coming to mind.  Scary cuz it's the first flying machine I've seen that makes so much of the bots-taking-over-the-world stuff we've seen in the movies seem like it's right around the corner.  It's flat out amazing and exciting... a great piece of work.

 Here's a link to the Vimeo video page for Holger Buss so you can go check out several of his other vids on the HexaKopter.  Let's enjoy getting to know these buzzy little flying machines, you know, before they decide to take over the world : )
