The varied potential of drone quadrocopters are becoming apparent — their applications now include emergency first aid and infectious disease control. Following a different path, The Human Media Lab at Queens University, Kingston, is using drones to realize the vision of 3D computer programs. In a room fitted with several cameras, small flying BitDrones organize themselves in 3D space the same way an operating system would on a computer screen. Fitted with displays to become “flying 3D pixels of programmable matter”, the drones allow users to physically interact with a program. Users can look through files by dragging and manipulating…
