Check out this amazing quadrocopter tennis match hosted by Zurich’s Flying Machine Arena. The robots were outfitted with tennis rackets, allowing them to fly toward the ball and return a human’s serve. The experiment is part of ETH Zurich’s ongoing project to examine adaptive high-performance maneuvers.
