Hoverbike - Robot rides Drone

You’ve probably heard about Chris Malloys Drone 3 Hoverbike on Kickstarter (5 days to go). A small-scale drone version of the original hoverbike - a working flying motorcycle. I’ve not paid much attention to the kickstarter project (they reached their goal btw), but their video above shows some pretty decent pizzadrone delivery use cases. The drone stabilization is impressive.

U.S. Army foresees robots becoming squad members

FAA: THERE MAY BE 30,000 DRONES IN U.S. SKIES BY 2020

The California State Senate passed legislation on Tuesday imposing strict regulations on how law enforcement and other government agencies can use drones, a move supporters said will protect privacy and prevent warrantless surveillance.

The bill attracted bipartisan support in the Senate, passing 25-8 during the evening vote in Sacramento.

The legislation would require law enforcement agencies to obtain a warrant before using an unmanned aircraft, or drone, except in emergencies such as a fire or a hostage-taking.

Other public agencies would be able to use drones, or contract for their use, to achieve their “core mission,” so long as that mission is not to gather criminal intelligence.

"The potential for abuse of drones is high and we need to be vigilant to ensure our Constitutional rights are protected," said the bill’s co-author, Democratic Senator Ted Lieu.

9 human rights tragedies the world needs to stop ignoring

It’s a tragically long list: missing women, ethnic cleansing and spreading diseases. Pick any country — including the United States — and there’s most likely a tragedy you’ll uncover that seriously violates international laws and standards. While unleashing international outrage can sometimes hurt more than it helps, there are some situations where it can make a real impact.

24 DRONE-CREATED GIFS THAT SHOW YOU THE WORLD LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE

Unmanned drones have gotten a bad reputation in recent years. And with good reason, especially when the U.S. government is using them to kill people in distant countries with arguably little accountability.

But more recently, they’ve also let us gain a new perspective on the world — literally. 

See the full gif set with these striking images from drones. 

I don’t get America. You people are questioning Obama for authorizing these drone strikes on ISIS in the name of trying to prevent a mass genocide. If Obama DIDN’T do something, y’all would be questioning why the Leader of the “Free World” didn’t save lives when the opportunity presented itself.

WiFi Drones Stand Up Network During Emergencies

Some of the first responders to enter future disaster zones might be tiny drones equipped with transmitters designed to reestablish WiFi and cellphone communications. 

University of North Texas electrical engineers have unveiled prototypes of the multirotor aerial vehicles that they are designing to fly in pairs after the network goes down. One drone would land in the area—perhaps on a rooftop—and the second would be placed in line of sight of the first up to almost two miles away.
