The Orbs Are Coming

The Japanese Ministry of Self-Defense has created an impressive spherical flying robot that has remarkable flight capabilities for it’s size and shape. According to the IEEE “It can buzz around at up to 60 kilometers per hour [about 40 mph] or hover stably in narrow spaces like hallways. But its neatest trick is to land by just smacking into the ground and rolling to a stop to absorb the impact. It’s also ideal for operating indoors, since keeping all of the flying and steering components insidethe robot lets it happily bounce off walls, doors, windows, light fixtures, and startled people.” Source:IEEE read more
