A drone capable of catching objects on the fly

Dario Brescianini exhibits and explains — in a rather geeky way — developing a omni-directional drone with eight rotors, capable of generating approximately 500,000 trajectories per second [unfortunately, with not much perspective on that figure].

Simply put, watch him throw up a ball in the air and see the drone calculate not only the trajectory of the ball, but the precise time required to reach the ‘catching point’ in real-time. Impressive stuff.
