Band of drones can play music better than your average human
"The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp," the company says. They even manage to play drums and crash cymbals with the help of a deconstructed piano action. And we can't forget about the bells — there are many of them. Clearly a ton of work went into producing this; KMel notes that it had support from Intel and Lockheed Martin in bringing the band together. And soon the "Flying Robot Rockstars" will be going on tour. Attendees at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, DC this weekend will be able to catch a live rendition of the set.
