Fly with math

This is my new favorite TED Talk. It's called Vijay Kumar: Robots that fly...and cooperate. It is one of the best I’ve seen. UPenn researchers have created mini helicopters so elegantly programmed that they function autonomously and can work together. You must watch the entire 16 minutes. Use this to inspire and motivate students, and to help keep math relevant.
