BEEEE cause we can, that’s why.
A simple but elegant solution.
The solid-state propulsion system works by ionizing the air.
This microdrone packs a lot of muscle.
That’s… surprisingly damaging!
Talk about a great use of technology!
The future is finally here.
Marsbees could cover a lot more ground on the Red Planet than sluggish rovers.
Their job will be to take pictures of fat seals and I’m so, so envious.
Humans had the upper hand for now. In the long run, though, drones prove more reliable.
The final selection for New Horizons is expected in mid-2019.
They reduced response times by over 75% during trials.
In Norway, a research project regularly uses drones to investigate dietary habits and predation behaviours of killer whale groups.
When you need medical supplies, you need them immediately and one startup promises to do it faster than anybody.
The drone will have to be light but solid enough to survive in the moon’s harsh atmosphere.
A little ship braving the ocean on its own.
Harvard roboticists made an insect-like flying robot that perches on ceilings to save energy, like bats, birds or butterflies.
Between 2,500 and 4,000 so-called ‘extremists’ have been killed by drone strikes and kill squads in Pakistan since 2004. Maybe as early as 2007, the NSA has targeted terrorists based on metadata supplied by machine learning program named Skynet. I have no idea who would find naming Skynet a machine designed to list people for assassination a bright idea, but that’s besides the point. The real point is that the inner workings of this software, as revealed in part by Edward Snowden from his leaks, suggest that the program might be targeting innocent people.
hinese drone making company Ehang recently showed off one of the most impressive contraptions at the CES convention in Las Vegas: a manned drone. It can fly as high as 11,500 feet, top speed of 63mph and a range of 20 minutes worth of powered flight. It can fit one person and a small backpack. It looks and sounds impressive, but is the world ready for it? For sure no, but the prospects for the future already sound appealing. Finally, the age The Jetsons foretold might finally be nigh.
Take a little break and enjoy the festivities all over again, all thanks to Jeff Cremer and his trusty drone.
