The uber geeks at MIT, have developed a fully autonomous UAV that can take off from the ground and hover, much like a helicopter. It can also take off from a vertical perch (vertical take off) and hover. It can even return (land) back at the perch, which is an amazing sight in itself. But that’s not all. The Autonomous UAV can also transition from a hovering state to horizontal level flight, allowing to to zip around the room. It actually looks weird when it hovers, it almost looks like some sort of special effect. Watching the airplane transition from hover to level flight mode is insane.

The video below is a test of the UAV’s VTOL.
