A group of UPenn Engineering students have taken several quadrotors and turned them into robotic musicians. We’ve seen the great swarming abilities of these machines recently, but now using various instruments and noisemakers, these aerial drones manage to plunk out a fairly convincing version of the “James Bond” theme.

The students who created this piece have started their own company, KMel Robotics, from which I’m sure we’ll see (and hear) more innovation by these tiny UAVs.
