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 12:50pm Thursday 12:50pm

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.

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

Farmer makes living drawings using cows, a drone and a truck

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

Drone video shows how Shanghai looks like a city from the future

Out of all the cities in the world, Shanghai might look the most futuristic. The rapid transformation that took it from a vertically challenged, agrarian looking town into a bustling metropolis with an arms race for a skyline actually might have actually advanced it decades beyond the present. » 1/13/15 9:21pm 1/13/15 9:21pm

Ten dancing drones join the Cirque du Soleil in one spectacular film

I can't believe no CGI was used in the making of this beautiful short film: An electrician dances with ten flying lamp shades—drones in disguise—in a mesmerizing choreography. A computer controls the drones so they move in synch and interact with the actor. » 9/29/14 4:00am 9/29/14 4:00am

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

NASA wants to send a quadcopter drone to Titan

NASA wants to search Saturn's moon Titan for life but they're having trouble coming up with a good way to cover a large territory and obtain samples. Now they think they may have a good solution: A 22-pound quadcopter that will work from a mothership. After reading about it, it's a really cool idea. » 6/19/14 12:02am 6/19/14 12:02am

Watch a drone fly over the Burj Khalifa and Dubai

The view sure is nice from up there, isn't it? Team Blacksheep flew a drone all across—or more accurately, all over—Dubai to show you downtown Dubai, the Palm Island, the Burj Al Arab and of course, the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. It's the closest we'll ever get to flying like Superman. » 5/16/14 9:23pm 5/16/14 9:23pm

Haha, watch Portugal launch a drone and immediately fail by crashing it

Well, hmph. That's not how drones work guys. Supposedly, this video shows Portugal attempting to launch a naval drone by giving it a running start. As the drone is thrown in the air to fly, it immediately nosedives and crashes into the ocean. What a wonderful failure. » 4/18/14 12:12am 4/18/14 12:12am

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.

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.

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 11:20am 1/21/14 11:20am

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
