This machine seems a very powerful tool!! I can imagine this used in conjunction with a 3D printer. By combining custom bent wires with printed plastic pieces, an unlimited number of light but resistant chassis can be developed for building robot prototypes.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
