It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman! Nope, it’s a robot! (Video)

They're not "Superman", but these hacked flying 'humans' have recently taken to the air around New York City. The video clip below shows some of their aerial adventures.

 

The R/C drones were put together as part of a promotional campaign for the Chronicle movie scheduled for release in the US this February.

Personally, while I will probably go see the movie when it hits theaters here in Japan, I'm much more interested in finding out more about the folks that hacked together the human shaped R/C planes. It really looks like something the hackers at the Brooklyn Aerodrome would come up with.
