Monkeys, more likely.  :)

While the idea being shown upthread has obvious similarities to a quadcopter, the Isreali's are developing a machine for similar purposes which resembles the concept first pioneered in the late 1950's by the Piasecki VZ-8 Airgeep. Two ducted rotors are placed front and rear of the machine, with passengers, engines and equipment held in between.
