The General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception Lab (GRASP) of the University of Pennsylvania Engineering Department has develop a series of miniature 4-rotor (quadrotor) helicopters capable of swarming, flight formation, and obstacle avoidance that is absolutely  amazing.  And a bit unnerving.

Below is a series of videos from Penn.
