Would be great to share some cool robots and gadgets ideas we stumble upon on the Net.

I just came across this video of Hexacopter here http://www.youtube.co...­

What stunned me, they can did a GPS navigation for it, so it can navigate itself to the point where the motors started. but it looks it would be easy to program it to navigate itself to pretty much any point, just give the GPS coordinates. And you can attach the camera to the damn thing :-)

Now make it a little bit smaller and now it becomes pretty scary...

Hi Oleg,

A gyro:

And a GPS:

mounted to a microprocessor of your choosing (I'd pick Arduino or TI's LaunchPad) would make this fairly simple. I'm surprised nobody has tried this yet with a small helium blimp design.
