Awesome video shows unmanned X-47B drone refueling in the air

Earlier this week, the badass X-47B drone became the first ever unmanned aircraft to refuel while in the air. Think about how cool this is, the drone has to meet the KC-707 tanker plane in the air, position itself perfectly to snatch onto the fuel line and then gas itself up with no one on board. So freaking cool. » 4/24/15 10:07am Friday 10:07am

A Flying Star Destroyer Drone Looks Terrifying As It Descends From Above

If the opening shot of Star Wars emphasized one thing, it's that the Empire's Star Destroyers are gigantic imposing spaceships that everyone in the galaxy should fear. The same goes for Oliver C's lastest quadcopter creation: a flying Star Destroyer that looks just as intimidating as it descends on you from above. And… » 3/26/15 2:24pm 3/26/15 2:24pm

Drone footage reveals the alien world that is a frozen Niagara Falls 

Pick your pop culture reference—the Fortress of Solitude or Hoth—and brush the mountains in cotton candy white and add water raging underneath the frozen sheets and you get a little bit close to what Niagara Falls looks like right now. NBC News has footage of the frozen Niagara Falls and it looks like another planet. » 2/20/15 11:04pm 2/20/15 11:04pm

Trippy drone video wrecks brains by flipping the world upside down

I don't know why this is so unsettling. The eerie music and the fact that the drone is taking footage from abandoned places doesn't help but it's also mostly because the world is literally flipped upside down and my normally aligned brain can't begin to process that without melting a little bit. » 2/06/15 12:40am 2/06/15 12:40am

Watch a drone shoot fireworks at people from the drone's point of view

Some guys essentially weaponized a drone by strapping Roman Candles onto the flying machine and making it fly around and shoot fireworks at people (themselves). The video made by PIEROGRAM is totally crude but is also a preview of how the world will end. Death by laser shooting drones and human stupidity. » 1/27/15 9:12pm 1/27/15 9:12pm

Angry ram knocks a drone out of the air and chases down photographer

Meet Ram. It rams things it doesn't like. Meet Drone. It buzzes around and films things it sometimes shouldn't. Ram meet drone. Ram rams drone. Ram chases down photographer who tries to save drone. Ram is like celebrities who freak out on the paparazzi for getting too close. Celebrities are just like us. Ram is us. » 9/02/14 10:23pm 9/02/14 10:23pm

The drones and cameras in this dystopian animation are horrifying

The dystopia created in this animation by Simon Russell is a world I hope to never be a part of: drones littered across the sky, surveillance cameras pointing every which way and for some reason, dubstep. It doesn't all make sense but Russell's imaginative take on the look of futuristic drones and cameras are… » 4/09/14 7:46pm 4/09/14 7:46pm

Impressive video of a massive dolphin stampede (and whales too!)

Captain Dave Anderson recently took his DJI Phantom 2 for a spin off the coast of San Clemente, California and spotted something amazing. As the drone took flight, it captured the amazing sight of thousands of common dolphins stampeding towards the Pacific Ocean. And then came the humpback whales. » 3/03/14 2:58pm 3/03/14 2:58pm

I want a drone to follow me around like in this super fun video

Sure the constant bzz bzz buzz of a drone would get annoying. And of course the invasion of privacy thing is a little bit of a concern. But man, it sure looks fun to see all your life's exploits get recorded from the angle of the all seeing eye of the drone. Just watch this video captured with a Cinedrone by Antimedia » 1/29/14 9:25pm 1/29/14 9:25pm

The Army Wants to Replace Up to 25 Percent of Its Soldiers with Robots

Cash-strapped and somewhat adrift in terms of missions, the U.S. Army is in the midst of an existential crisis. Once ballooning in budget and size, the Army now says it wants to be "a smaller, more lethal, deployable, and agile force." And it's going to need robots to do it right. » 1/21/14 2:34pm 1/21/14 2:34pm

Russia is developing ground drone army—including amphibious models

Russia is developing weaponized ground drones, including some big amphibious models like the one you can see here. Add the thousands of combat air drones from many nations already flying through the world and it's not crazy to think in a full robotic war happening before 2020 somewhere in the world. » 1/16/14 5:01am 1/16/14 5:01am
