This felt like Hideo Kojima and MGS.

Anybody else get the bad feeling that
these will be used to spy on the public.
Put a camera and a gun on one of these things and they would be super intimidating.
Imagine one peeking in your _

"Japan Creates Spherical Flying Machine?"
"Is it radioactive? I bet it is..."

Why the Japanese aren't ruling this world I'll never know, they are clearly superior beings to Caucasians in every way.

I was thinking the same thing.
The smaller these things get, the easier it is for governments to spy on each other and their citizens.

However on a more positive note.
it would be cool to scale one of these up and make an aircraft out of it.

Ile give it 2-5 years before the goverment have these loaded with sensors and patrolling outside our windows. Especially in the UK, our gov loves spy cams. Just look at the amount of CCTV cams.

Not very impressive, just a combination of proven technologies, but nothing groundbreaking. For all the people saying "getting closer" no, its not. It's based on the same gravity fighting technologies as an airplane and helicopter. When japan makes a sphere that has no rotary propeller and wings, thats when we will be "closer".

On the other hand, I cant wait for Air Hogs to get ahold of the concept, looks like an hour or two of fun on christmas day with the kids

I think they tried to in the 1940's. Have you played Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3? The Japanese army in that game is amazingly good.

So it's okay to be racist against whites? Why did you need to make the comparison? Besides. A fan in a plastic cage has been done to death. Does it even remotely compare to the technology of a F-22 Raptor? The Japanese were still living in a feudal iron age less than 150 years ago. Their society was modernized and brought forward a thousand years with western ideals and technology. They were even highly dependent on Germany in WW2 for technological needs.

What on earth does that have to do with the topic?

Why are there so many kids on ATS these days?

No no no no.... you're looking at it all wrong.... You are looking at the Form, the parts, the materials and construction.

What you SHOULD be looking at, was the flight stabilization and error correction of the device.

Now *THAT* was truly breathtaking.

Apart from the obvious spying applications, it also has inspection applications in various industrial sectors.

Just imagine a dozen or so of these, all computer controlled by radio link, all using infra-red or whatever sensors to probe defects in large structures like cooling towers on a regular basis...

You could use them for weather reconnaissance, traffic reports, or even scouting into dangerous areas.

It's nice!

do not feed those kind of trolls. they promote the kind of anger you're experiencing which will lead to all out war.

its a contra rotaing twin rotor helicoper in a " roll cage " - that does not " a spherical flying machnine make

a sphere is a solid geometric object - if you enclose this devices roll cage in a plastic skin - it will be unable to function

the only inovation here is the roll-cage - which is ver very clever - as , as it demonstrates it can survive lowspeed impact with objects - which would destry a conventional micro helicopter
