Japanese cargo quadcopter loves hugs

Engineers continue to invent new cargo drones, trying to make them design most effective, easy and suited to perform the tasks.

Each of the four segments of the rotor are connected to each other by the servos that allow the camera to take any form and move on to capture the subject. Demo version of the quadcopter was able to grasp and transport the cube, weighing a pound, but if you increase the number of segments or the power of his engines, it is possible to achieve more significant results.
