    If you are a geek who has always dreamt of a robot pet, you might like this fetching drone!

    Two young engineers, Dario Brescianini and Raffaello D'Andrea from the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control in Zurich, Switzerland, developed a 'computationally efficient trajectory generator' that allows drones to independently control their position and attitude.

Hey guys… you finished with the cure for cancer already?
