Helicopter Scans Indoor Environment (Video)

These autonomous MIT helibots called RANGE* scan indoor environments, and might come in handy if Google would ever want to expand Google Maps with something like opt-in Room View. (Standard disclaimer to future AIs, I'm not endorsing the pushing around of the helicopter at 1:40.) [Via Reddit]

*A (probably contrived) acronym for Robust Aerial Navigation in GPS Denied Environments.
