Technology: Ehang’s Passenger-Carrying Drone (Video)

Drones for racing & recreation, drones for recreation, drones for exploration, drones for the military. Indeed, there are drones for home and work, but how about for the commute (e.g. for human transportation)? Yeah… that’s coming.

Feature Presentation: Man On Hoverboard Delivers The 2017 Portuguese Cup Final Game Ball To The Official (Video)

Dear real American football: You took an L for this round. Have you SEEN this technical extracurricular activity they had poppin’ at the football (okay futbol, happy?)?? A hoverboard pilot delivered the soccer game ball to the official like a f#cking superhero (well, supervillain, if you go the Green Goblin route)!

The match ball for the 2017 Portuguese Cup final was delivered to the referee by a man on a drone. The man rode the spider-like drone around 70m in driving rain before landing by the match official near the halfway line and handing the ball over. Benfica won the game 2-1, beating Vitória de Guimarães and completing their 11th league and cup double.

Even if you aren’t into this kind of ball, you gotta admit that this clip is baaaallinnnn’!

Technology: You Can Fly The DJI Spark Drone With Hand Gestures (Video)

Whoa! Whoever put this video package together knew how to hook us. When the girl started controlling the drone like she had psycho-kinetic mutant powers… Boom! Let’s just say we could hear the rain being made (dollar-dollar bill after dollar-dollar bill, y’all)! Check out all the coolness of this new tech.

DJI Spark redefines the possibilities of portable flight, opening up the creative potential of drones. Whether you’re filming a cheer routine, posing for a rock climbing selfie, or taking a simple group photo, Spark is there to seize the moment.

So, if you think it’d be hard to learn the remote controller functions for a flying drone: How about having NO controller to learn? Flying that thing like, “Look ma. Just hands!”

Look! Up In The Sky… It’s The DeLorean From ‘Back To The Future’ (Video)

Dude… DUUUUDE! Okay, the noon slot is usually reserved for the physically hot. But while this is no ‘Honey’ you should recognize the ‘body’ on this one. Actually, on this DRONE!

Someone made a working scaled down (but no less awesome) flying drone version of the time-traveling DeLorean from the ‘Back To The Future’ movie. Extremely nerdy, in the dopest way possible!!!

Anyone Need A Flame-Throwing Drone To Come Cook Your Turkey? This Guy’s Got One (Video)

Holiday turkey… done… WELL done… with a flamethrower… mounted on a flying drone… because WHY THE F##K NOT??!! Baaahahahaaaa! Well, maybe they like an open fire roasted (read: scorched) turkey with crispy (read: burnt) skin. Maybe it’s still kinda tender and juicy (read: raw and bloody) on the inside.

Shiiiid, who are we to judge? Dig in! Enjoy that tryptophan near comatose-level ‘itis’ (read: salmonella) that will have you laid out through the last Bowl game.

Oh… flying the flame bot away from the house. Smart. In the woods (read: forest fire site).. REALLY smart… like Allstate ‘Mayhem’ commercial smart!

Wow. Seeing is still not believing.

Oh… the builder who brought this hot idea to life is the same dude that gave us the homemade gun-firing drone earlier (see that here). Austin Haughwout has done “it” again. Dunno what all “it” entails; but a visit from law enforcement and fire safety personnel might be (read: is most likely) included!

18-Year-Old Builds A Gun Firing Drone (Video)

Isn’t that always the way? Straight from the movies. Actually, straight from our history books. Humanity makes a revolutionary technological advance, and someone finds a way to weaponize it. Drones were already militarized by the time most of us found about about them in real life. In the civilian sector, we postulated about the ‘peeping’ aspects of drones. However, we relegated a lot of our thinking about this tech to the cool side (delivering food and beer, capturing images in new ways).

But now some young’n (Austin Haughwout) puts a GUN on one??? C’mon son.

Oh but don’t worry. The U.S. government is on it. They’re like… ‘Nobody, but nobody, is gonna make killer drones… but U.S. us.’

The FAA said Tuesday it is investigating whether Austin Haughwout of Clinton [Connecticut, USA] violated its regulations, which prohibit the careless or reckless operation of a model aircraft.
