DailyDirt: The Drones Are Coming

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've talked about all kinds of drones before and about the FAA restrictions on using the more toy-like versions outdoors. Sometimes people do stupid stuff with drones -- and it really doesn't help to create an environment where people can enjoy drones responsibly. However, people will always do stupid things, and we can't let the jerks ruin it for the rest of us. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    The Daily Show

    That story about the gyrocopter, see if you can find "The Daily Show" coverage of it from a few days ago. Especially if you'd like to see how crappy the secret services are becoming.

    Soo drones are real?

    Seriously, no victim no crime. Sounds like a bunch of fear mongering.

    Just wait

    Everything needed to create Pico-drones already exists. Dust mote size drones will someday be everywhere and just a part of life.

    Not waiting

    If you know that there is the capability then it is already out there and in active use by our insecurity services.

    Remember that drones came out of re - purposing off the shelf hobby equipment
