The reverse problem is interesting too, e.g. releasing grenades with a deadly precision!
Imagine the scenario, first flyby for picking up the grenade, second flyby to release it on target!
Good idea, thanks for sharing.
I am shocked by the obvious awkwardness and un-agileness of the robot (compared to the natural, biological eagle in the video).
Time to accelerate the development of robots so they can have the agility/nimbleness of natural animals.

How soon before it can get that pizza off Walter White’s roof?
How soon before it can deliver a pizza to me at my residence? This can solve the last 100 foot problem for package delivery from an autonomous ground vehicle.
cool idea….. next up we can see these flying robots snatching items off the store shelves and then delivering them by air to our homes…. Pick and place machines can now be called fly and snatch machines…. LOL
