MIT's Flyfire To Paint Images In the Sky Using Micro-Helicopters 65

@engadget mentions that a new project dubbed "Flyfire" at MIT is looking to launch a fleet of LED-equipped micro-helicopters and coordinate them in synchrony to create massive floating images. "By using LED-equipped drones the project pledges to build free-floating 3D displays, endowing them with enough smarts and positional awareness to organize themselves into an airborne canvas. It sounds deliciously exciting and challenging."

"Spock, did you see the looks on their faces?" "Yes, Captain, a sort of vacant contentment."
