Jason Dorie, self-proclaimed geek, managed to build himself a quad-rotor flying contraption. Each propeller has three blades allowing for the “motors to respond a little faster” than his previous 2-bladed Spyder. When this thing takes off it sounds like an angry swarm of bees looking to ruin your day. He hopes to be able to make it fly itself as well.
It seems like more and more, regular people sitting in their workshops at home are able to build things some think only the military should be able to do. I guess that’s why contests like the X-Prize have such fierce competition. Makes you wonder what a person in their garage could build in ten years.
