Crowd-sourced drone docking in space
The European Space Agency has released an augmented reality app for the AR.Drone that lets you simulate docking your drone with the International Space Station.
Players get points in Astro Drone for docking in a way that’s "rapid but controlled," with bonuses for correct orientation and low speed on the final approach. According to Guido de Croon, a research team fellow at ESA, the result of the crowdsourced game data "could be much more autonomous spacecraft that can reliably maneuver, dock, or land themselves."
Reminds me of DARPA's ACTUV, a game that collected player data to help improve anti-submarine warfare tactics.
