  1. Blech: Renowned Romantic Restaurant TGI Friday’s Launches Mistletoe Drones

    Too Gross Is Frenching?

    Of all the obligatory affection we're expected to show during the Holidays, mistletoe kisses definitely make me the most uncomfortable. But, judging from that above TGI Friday ad, I'm in the minority. People love being pressured by robots and waitstaff into swapping mozzarella-tinged spit with their dinner companions! 'Tis the season, ohohohoho!

  2. Olde But Goode News: Drone Discovers Abandoned Renaissance Fair On Historic Land

    I said reconnaissance, you bucket of bolts! What care I for meat on a stick?

    Disclaimer: this story, much like the Renaissance itself, is a little old. But does extreme radness really have an expiration date?

  3. This Is A Cute Bracelet! Oh, And It’s Also A Drone That Will Take Selfies For You In Mid-Air

    Does it come in black?

    Jewelry makes you feel super-cute, and it doesn't have to serve any purpose beyond that. But wouldn't it be better if all your accessories worked double-duty as amazing tech that would also make you feel like a super spy?

  4. Fantasia-esque Cirque du Soleil Flying Drone Dance Short Film Makes Us Miss Practical Effects in Movies

    We're looking at you, Episode VII. Don't screw up.

    Hollywood, take note. This magical video is seriously just a few quadcopters cosplaying as lampshades and flying along to an algorithm, and it looks amazing. Can we please have more inventive practical effects back in our movies? This is like Fantasia or Beauty and the Beast come to life. (Behind-the-scenes video after the jump.)

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

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

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