  1. CNN Pulls a T.G.I.Friday’s, Inks Deal With the FAA to Launch Reporter Drones

    Brace yourself for some exploitative coverage if one of them ever crashes.

    What does T.G.I.Friday's have to do with drones, you ask? MORE THAN ONE WOULD THINK.

  2. Happy Boxing Day! Here’s A Kangaroo Punching A Drone Out Of The Sky

    You're welcome, Internet.

    This video was taken in Hunter Valley, Australia, and while the footage was salvaged, the device itself was damaged beyond repair. On the plus side, now little Timmy will probably feel a bit better about getting his new Christmas drone stuck in a tree already—or, if he's a different sort of kid, he'll be jealous that he didn't get any aerial kangaroo punching footage in the process. It could go either way.

  3. The Navy’s Newest Drone Is A Literal Robot Shark; SharkNATO Is Imminent

    Jawsome or not jawsome?

    Oh, it's not a "shark robot," you say? It's called the "GhostSwimmer?" Well, consider me reassured.

  4. So The TGI Friday Mistletoe Drone Already Slit Someone’s Face Open

    We are the endless appetizers.

    Last month we covered TGI Friday's "Mistletoe Drone" program, the franchise restaurant's initiative to encourage holiday cheer while simultaneously satiating their robot overlords' lust for power. Rarely has our snark been so justified. Blood hath been spilt in Brooklyn.

  5. 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!

  6. 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?

  7. 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?

  8. 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.)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
