I was  watching some quadrotor videos on youtube and came across this cool quadrotor made by Armin Ambühl, supervised by Sergei Lupashin and Raffaello D'Andrea of ETH - the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

The coolest part about this quadrotor is that they have interfaced their quadrotor with Microsoft Kinect rig by which they are able to fly it with simple arm gestures.You can see in the video how precisely the quad is being controlled by arm gestures.
