It’s time for today’s post about sleek, futuristic inventions by smart people.
Japan’s Ministry of Defense recently unveiled this flying spherical device, which seems to be very aware of its surroundings.
As Dig Info details, This machine can hover like a helicopter, and take-off and land vertically. But because it works like a propeller plane standing vertically, it can fly forward at high speed using wings, which a helicopter can’t do. This machine also has three gyro sensors, so even if it hits an obstacle, it can maintain its attitude and keep flying through automatic control.
Check out this video to see the spherical object in action. I wonder when we’ll be able to buy our own?
