"A Swedish company called Bitcraze may just of provided the tool to scratch my itch! A tiny quadcopter called the Crazyflie Nano, that fits into the palm of your hand and comes as a kit.

 

Designed with home assembly in mind, once ordered you must mount and solder the motors. Being open source, you can easily expand the capabilities of the quadcopter to include features like an on-board camera / microphone. It’s basically a flying development board. It has a Flight time up to 7 minutes with standard 170mAh Li-Po battery." from Source: http://geekboy.it

ghbrett's insight:

These tiny quadcopters are amazing. I have watched YouTube! videos of the mobility of these. A Dutch research group have programmed four to work together with a net to autonomously capture or toss a ball in the air. Note that this is also an Open Source kit! I want one -- someday!
