ICYMI: Soon flying UAVs could pick stuff up; carry it away

Today on In Case You Missed It: A large format hexacopter with mechanical gripper arms is all set to swoop in on your backyard and move some chairs around. Going by the Prodrone's YouTube video, it can carry 10 kilograms.

Meanwhile, MIT and Georgia Tech researchers developed an imaging system that can read the first nine pages of a closed book. MIT worked out the computational device while Georgia created the algorithm to separate layers of letters.


If you want to see the macro video, that's here, while the Boston Dynamics Atlas robot update is here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
