Swiss scientists create Flying Ping Pong robots

Scientists from Switzerland have created floating robots called quadrocopters that are able to keep a ball in the air by bouncing it between them.

The robot were created by researchers at the Swiss Control of Distributed, Autonomous Systems (CDAS) laboratory in their Flying Machine Arena in Zurich. They are capable of synchronized choreography, acrobatic tricks, and extremely precise movements.

Equipped with a tennis racket on top of them, the duo bounces the ball around a netted-off section of a Swiss building. Both units are controlled by humans (for now), but could theoretically be programmed as well.

Do they look like a robot in Transformers movie? :)
