Gadgets: Festo AirJelly

I stumbled upon the above video of a robot referred to as an "AirJelly" that was created four years ago by a German company called Festo, and I was completely blown away.  Where have they been hiding this thing for the past four years?! The first thing that crossed my mind was, why the hell isn't this thing delivering my pizza already?

Festo is making some impossibly graceful, lighter than air robots that glide around in an aeronautical ballet set to dated electronic music. One can imagine them evolving into household pets, space ambassadors, or maybe leading a spirited young heroine on a mystical journey of discovery in an animated adventure.
