I couldn't have been more excited when I heard about the robot Yale aerial manipulator, a toy-like helicopter with a robotic hand. The small machine is capable of picking up objects weighing two kilograms, and can reach speeds of 130km/hr. Beer runs will be no more once this gadget is put to use.

While the Yale aerial manipulator has potential to make every frat jock the envy of the party, it also has practical purposes like picking up bombs and/or packages in hard to reach areas.
