Is it possible to create a flying network? The University of Essex has created just that. Named the UltraSwarm, it is a group of small flying web servers running Linux.

Excerpt:

"The Flying Gridswarm and UltraSwarm projects are designed to get computers to fly in formation like a flock of birds and communicate wirelessly while airborne to process flight information."

"UltraSwarm machines incorporate helicopters fitted with cameras, Linux web servers and Bluetooth modules for communication. The Flying Gridswarm will be built around model aircraft and use Wi-Fi connections."
