Check out the V-bat drone...
DARPA has created another new invention straight out of the movies. The Department of Defense agency, which is responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military, has created what they call the autonomous hovering V-bat drone, which acts in a manner similar to the Imperial Probe Droid from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
The drone has a stereo vision system with GPS and is capable of delivering one-pound payloads to various targets without any human input whatsoever. Check out a video of it below:
