Flying catch/throw bots


That’s pretty cool – they throw a camera around at the end.

That’s you. You’re the camera. Seeing things from a ball’s-eye POV, via the network.

I’d like to know how the learning-algorithm works. I’ve been tinkering with this today… teaching an arduino to control a motor to point a sensor at a light (little baby steps). It’s easy enough to mathematically control the thing, but it would be a lot more interesting to genetically algorithmically control it.

Here’s a microcopter learning to do a triple flip

Unfortunately, there are links to the algorithms (or at least the theory) to do this here, and it might as well be in Klingon.
