Cool Flying Machine

Serkan Toto at TechCrunch (10/25) wrote, “The world got a first glimpse of the ‘world’s first spherical flying machine’ back in June this year, but its maker, Japan’s Ministry of Defense, decided it’s time to showcase it publicly a few days ago in Tokyo.” A video shows the flying sphere in action. Toto noted “the drone can stand still in mid-air, fly vertically and horizontally through narrow spaces at up to 60km/h, and (which is very cool) keep on moving when it hits the ground or a wall. Thanks to three gyro sensors in its body, the machine can keep also flying even if it’s hit by an obstacle.”
