I always thought that the beauty of a drone was the ability to operate in flight, virtually without even touching the ground. Remember the drone repairing roofs? The others that I told you about? Here it is. Accurate.
It seems that the engineers of the Caltech Center for Autonomous Systems and the (CAST) is of a different opinion, and is developing a bipedal drone.
You got it right. It has propellers and flies, but underneath it has legs and walks.
LEONARDO (LEg ON Aerial Robotic DrOne) uses the upper part of its structure to hold up, it is appropriate to say, two legs that walk on flat surfaces.
I'm not sure I can figure out what real applications such technology might have, but take a look too: maybe you noticed something I didn't notice.
Then? What do you think? The only advantage of this rather disturbing bipedal drone is that we hear it easily coming, with all the din that the propellers make.
