When you hear the word "drone," you probably think of something either very useful or very scary. But could they have aesthetic value?

Prepare to be dazzled by a dreamy, swirling array of flying machines as they dance like fireflies above the TED stage. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks...
