  1. Disney Has Patented Illegal “Gepetto Drone” Technology To Operate A Fleet Of Enormous Puppets

    Do you want to amass an army?

    For all their possible positive uses, unmanned aerial vehicles don't exactly have the greatest public image--much like puppets, they're an inherently creepy and untrustworthy human innovation.

  2. Some Jerk Crashed a Drone Into Yellowstone National Park’s Hot Springs

    This is why we can't have nice springs.

    Drones are hard to fly. I know. I've crashed one. Repeatedly. But I didn't do it into an amazing natural phenomena like the Grand Prismatic Spring like some tourist did this week at Yellowstone National Park.

  3. FAA Kills Amazon’s Drone-Delivery Plans, and Our Dreams of Robots Bringing Us Stuff

    If a robot can't bring my late-night impulse buys then what's even the point?

    Ars Technica is reporting that the FAA has shot down Amazon's plans to use pilot-less drones to deliver packages. The issue could be revisited soon, but for now it seems Amazon and any other companies planning on using drones for commercial purposes are out of luck.

  4. You Can Now Borrow an Aerial Drone From a Library in South Florida

    #ReadingRaindrone

    Some universities have awesome "makerspaces" where patrons have access to 3D printers, laser cutters, and other emerging technology. Others have books that are bound in human skin. Thankfully, the University of South Florida's library is closer to the former than the latter, in that they now offer aerial drone check-outs. Though, you never know: after the drones gain sentience and enslave all of humanity just like we've always feared they might, the USF library could one day have both!

  5. These Slow-Mo Videos Of Drone-Fired Missiles Bring The Video Game Realness

    The best way to eliminate campers.

    This is what it looks like when a Brimstone missile-equipped MQ-9 Reaper Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) drone decimates targets traveling up to 70MPH from 20,000 feet in the air. Using lasers for accuracy. Basically, it looks like the craziest video game ever, except real things explode in slow motion.

  6. UPS Delivers Government’s $400,000 Drone Instead of Dude’s Weights

    Inability to deliver drones disqualifies UPS from having drones, right?

    Reddit user Seventy_Seven ordered weights for his gym, but UPS delivered hardware of an entirely different kind: a pricey PUMA Unmanned Aircraft System.

  7. Colorado Town Shoots Down Proposal to Allow Residents to Shoot Down Drones

    It's drone season! Rabbit season! Drone season! Rabbit season!

    Last year, we heard about a proposal in Deer Trail, Colorado that would allow residents to shoot down drones flying overhead in exchange for a bounty. A vote yesterday shot down the proposal and got rid of the town's mayor, who supported the plan. It looks like drone season will have to wait for another day.

  8. Innovative Dad Pulls Son’s Baby Tooth Using Flying Drone [Video]

    Just wait until your wisdom teeth come in, boy.

    Apparently the "slamming door" method was just too boring for Malcolm Swan and his brave son, Adam. Instead, the pair removed Adam's baby tooth the good old fashioned way—by tying it to a DJI Phantom Quadcopter and then letting the drone rip. Sadly, Adam's tooth was never recovered, but I think the Tooth Fairy will still pay up.

  9. Drone Captures Incredible Footage of Dolphin Stampede

    Smart PR move, drones.

    Apparently there is a positive aspect to drones (besides their ability to deliver useless things to lazy people.) The technology offers a surprisingly noninvasive way to capture footage of wildlife—such as this insane video of a DOLPHIN STAMPEDE. Watch to the end for bonus baby humpbacks.

  10. Rolls Royce Wants to Launch a Fleet of Unmanned Drone Ships

    All aboard the S.S. Hubris.

    Apparently not only does Rolls Royce have a maritime division with the precious name Blue Ocean, but they also want to eliminate sailors from the high seas and change maritime law so they can launch a fleet of massive drone ships. Have at 'em, Pirates.
