I've seen many of the demos he shows, but there is a super cool new one 
of autonomous mapping of an unknown building using a kinect sensor 
mounted on a large quadcopter.  Plus the quadcopters playing the james 
bond theme song video, if you haven't seen that yet :-)

For those of you in Toronto, I'm putting together a quad copter building 
team at hacklab, we're meeting tomorrow from 2-5pm to get started.  The 
goal is to end up with at least one VR-rig controlled quadcopter, 
capable of making awesome FPV videos and giving the operator immersive 
flight experience.  This first meeting will be mostly about assessing 
how many people we have, how big our collective budget is, and getting 
started on the huge amount of research we need to do...
