“Pet Drone Pas de Deux” is apparently intended to pose the question, “When we love our robots, will it matter if they are human or not?”
Falkor Systems has developed a dance piece in which a human dancer performs with an autonomous AR Drone quadcopter
New York City-based robotics developer Falkor Systems is working on autonomous flying robots that could fly alongside extreme athletes, shooting video of their exploits in the process. Beyond that, however, the company envisions a day in which such machines may hover around everyday people, acting as their assistants and perhaps even becoming their “friends.” In a demonstration of how such a relationship could be possible, Falkor recently used an augmented AR Drone quadcopter to take part in a modern dance performance with a human partner.
