Video: Welcome our autonomous hovering robotic overlords

Every day we get a step closer to that moment when the machines take over, SkyNet is a reality, the Matrix kicks in and humanity is left to cower in our closets.

Those plucky quadrotors at UPenn’s GRASP laboratory never cease to amaze. In this latest video, watch them autonomously build a structure. In the future, construction workers will be a buzzing, mildly disturbing haze of mechanical diligence.
