If you needed further proof skynet was aware, these robocopters can fly in formation and follow a leader

The GRASP unit over at the University of Pennsylvania have been working on quad copters for some time. Now they have trained them to destroy us. Not really, but this is pretty cool. The flying minis can fly in a formation, choose a leader and follow it and even allow one robot to drop off and the formation will continue as planned. That is pretty important in case, you know, one gets shot down in the quest to take over the world. These flying bots could already build things autonomously in groups. If all this doesn’t frighten you too much, check out the video of your future leaders in motion. And remember: You never leave your wingman.
