Engineers at Penn’s School of Engineering and Applied Science have programmed a swarm of quadcopters, also known as quadrotors, to collectively play the James Bond Theme using real musical instruments.
The quadcopters make a dramatic entrance with smoke and lights, and then proceed to perform. The musical instruments include the keyboard, drums, maracas and a cymbal. A guitar built from a couch frame is also played by the quadcopters flying over the guitar strings and dragging wires across them. The quadcopters play the key board by hovering over various landing pads each of which is attached to the keyboard keys.
