An Ayden witness at North Carolina captured with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K aerial camera a remarkable UFO sighting.

The UFO, just 50 feet off the ground, traveled 6200 feet (about 1.2 miles) in 1/3rd of a second (About 10,000 mph).

After witness filed the UFO report with MUFON, they notified NASA and sent them a copy of the video.

This UFO sighting is under investigation and analysis work is being performed on it by both agencies.

Rinspeed Etos BMW i8 Can Drive Itself and Has a Drone Landing Pad

rinspeed-etos-11-jpg

The Rinspeed Etos is packed full with cool features.

Thanks to its 9 high-definition exterior cameras for tracking surrounding objects, the Rinspeed Etos can operate autonomously. While on the road, it automatically links to the city infrastructure for traffic information and even cell phone reception.

Switch to a manual driving mode and the steering wheel will extend out of the dashboard, and the vehicle’s gaze-tracking system monitors their eyes to ensure constant alertness.

A neat little extra – a drone and a landing platform for it, consisting of 12,000 individually controlled LEDs, are included.

Inside, the Etos is equipped with two curved 21.5-inch Ultra HD widescreen monitors that serve as the gateway between the occupants and the Harman Connected Car infotainment suite. The technology acts like a courteous personal assistant, anticipating the needs and wants of the people inside while also providing ‘perfect entertainment.’ Even better, the system learns as it goes, predicting appointments, adapting to personal preferences, and reducing the amount of manual entries the driver must input. If you must be bothered with entering in an address or changing a preference, you can do so with touch, voice, or gesture controls.

Few of these features strike us as strictly necessary, and the most outlandish of them (we’re looking at you, drone) will likely never be implemented on a production automobile. And what features do will likely find their home in more accommodating vehicles than a two-seat sports car. But show cars like these are made to capture our imaginations, and the Rinspeed Etos has clearly done exactly that. We’ll look forward to seeing it at CES and at the Geneva Motor Show to follow.

Published on Dec 17, 2015

Most prototype self-driving cars are designed for comfort, not performance. After all, wouldn’t you want to take the wheel if you really wanted a thrill? Rinspeed thinks there’s a case to be made, though: it just teased the Σtos, an autonomous sports car concept. The vehicle still has a steering wheel for those hands-on moments, but the controller automatically retracts into the dashboard when you’re content to let the car do all the hard work. Two curved widescreen displays also move closer into view in this mode, and there’s even a drone (complete with a landing pad) that could deliver goods or record your adventures on camera.

Like with many Rinspeed concepts, this is all a bit pie-in-the-sky — the odds are that you won’t see an Ʃtos in your garage any time soon, if ever. There will be a real-world example of it at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, however. And even if it’s just a theoretical exercise, it’s a reminder that self-driving cars don’t have to be exclusively about getting from point A to point B. You could eventually see sports cars that give you full control when you’re on a race track, but take the reins when you’re wading through traffic on the way home.

Brain Farm shoots first-ever Ultra HD Phantom Flex4k drone footage

XactSense

Published on Apr 1, 2015

Brain Farm paired a Phantom Flex4K with an Aerigon UAV to shoot the world’s first Ultra High Definition, 4K aerial drone footage. The combination is a cinematic game changer.

What does 1000 frames per second at 4K resolution translate to? Stunningly high-quality slow motion footage. Until now the images captured by the Phantom Flex 4K have been limited by the camera’s weight. Simply put: It’s too heavy for most drones to carry.

Brain Farm, the production company that raised the cinematography bar in action sports filmmaking with the landmark movies, That’s It, That’s All, The Art of Flight and the soon-to-be-released We Are Blood, partnered with drone manufacturer Intuitive Aerial to develop a cinema-focused UAV system capable of carrying the camera.

The result is what you see here: The world’s first aerial footage shot from a UAV with a Phantom Flex4k. The world of options this technological combination will open up is about to break the ceiling of possibility in digital cinematic storytelling.

This is only the beginning. Follow the full story at: http://www.brainfarmcinema.com

DALER : A flying And Walking DRONE Robot …..

daler robot

Published on Jan 20, 2015

The issue of how to use one robot in multiple terrains is an ongoing question in robotics research. In a paper published in Bioinspiration and Biomimetics today a team from LIS, EPFL and NCCR Robotics propose a new kind of flying robot that can also walk. Called the DALER (Deployable Air-Land Exploration Robot), the robot uses adaptive morphology inspired by the common vampire bat, Desmodus rotundus, meaning that the wings have been actuated using a foldable skeleton mechanism covered with a soft fabric such that they can be used both as wings and as legs (whegs).

It is hoped that a future application of the DALER might be to find victims in dangerous areas after a natural disaster. The DALER can be remotely deployed to fly to an affected area, and then can walk through a disaster zone (e.g. a damaged building) to locate victims, meaning that human rescue teams can concentrate their efforts where they are needed, rather than using time to search for victims in a dangerous environment. Future development of the DALER will include the possibility to hover and to take off autonomously from the ground in order to allow the robot to return to the air and come back to base after the mission.

Spy Drone Can See What You are Wearing From 17,500 Feet… WTF

Rise Of The Drones: http://video.pbs.org/video/2326108547

A new camera developed by the Pentagon’s research arm was highlighted in a recent special on PBS’ “Nova” in an episode called “Rise of the Drones.” It’s a camera system so detailed it can discern specific movements and even what a subject is wearing.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA’s) Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System (ARGUS) has 1.8 billion pixels (1.8 gigapixels), making it the world’ highest resolution camera. The sensors on the camera are so precise, PBS stated it is the equivalent to the capabilities of 100 Predator drones in a medium city.
In the clip from PBS, it is said this is the first time the government has allowed information to be shared about these capabilities.

“It is important for the public to know that some of these capabilities exist,” Yiannis Antonaides with contractor BAE Systems said in the clip, but noted the sensor itself cannot be revealed. “Because we are not allowed to expose some of the pieces that make up this sensor, so you get to look a pretty plastic curtains.”

The technology allows the user to open up a specific windows of interest in the camera’s view while still keeping up an image of the larger picture (sort of like split screen). Antonaides explained that the colored boxes in the image show that the sensor recognized moving objects. “You can see individuals crossing the street. You can see individuals walking in parking lots. There’s actually enough resolution to see the people waving their arms or walking around or what kind of clothes they wear,” he said. PBS noted that ARGUS can actually see much more details than just attire. It can see objects as small as six inches. At 2:23 in the clip, Antonaides points out that from 17,500 feet, a white object in the field of view is a bird flying. PBS pointed out that DARPA put a time crunch on creating the camera, which lead Antonaides to look into technology that you probably have in your purse or pocket at this very moment. Taking similar imaging systems used in smartphones and putting 368 together, is essentially how Antonaides and other engineers at BAE Systems created ARGUS. It is this “mosaic” of cameras that allows the system to zoom in on specific sections in extreme detail. As for data, the system stores up to 1 million terabytes a day. Putting this into perspective, PBS notes this is equal to 5,000 hours of HD footage.


“You can go back and say ‘I would like to know what happened at this particular location three days, two hours, four minutes ago’ and it would actually show you what happened as if you were watching it live,” Antonaides said.

It is still classified information whether ARGUS has been used in the field yet.

“If we had our choice, we would like ARGUS to be over the same area 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That’s not very achievable with manned platforms. This is where UAVs come in and they’re absolutely the perfect platform,” Antonaides said.
President Barack Obama’s authorization of military aid to the Syrian rebels “dramatically” increases U.S. support for the opposition, the White House said Friday, while acknowledging that it will take time for the supplies to reach fighters struggling in their clashes with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

U.S. officials said the new aid would include weapons and ammunition and comes in response to firmer evidence from the White House of chemical weapons use by Assad’s regime.

“There’s already material that’s been flowing to the opposition and that will continue in the weeks to come,” said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser.

Obama has said the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line,” suggesting greater American intervention. While a small percentage of the 93,000 people reportedly killed in Syria are said to have died from chemical weapons — U.S. intelligence puts the number at 100 to 150 — the White House views the deployment of the deadly agents as a flouting of international norms.

Rhodes said Obama made the decision to authorize military aid to the rebels over the past few weeks. He also defended the president’s caution on the issue, saying “these are not steps the president takes lightly.”

AMAZON Introduces DRONE Delivery……….

amazon-prime-air

The delivery drones may never get off the ground, but that’s beside the point.

Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and CBS did a fine job hyping a promised “surprise” on “60 Minutes” Sunday, revealing a nascent plan for an Amazon Prime Air fleet of unmanned “octocopters” to drop packages gently on the doorsteps of customers. The idea may or may not fly, and if it ever does it won’t be for years and many FAA studies and logistical work-arounds.

amazon drone

Yet the real point of Bezos’ expert playing of the network-media game was to drive home his constant and zealously emphasized point about Amazon’s mission: we do everything to make products cheaper, and life easier, for our customers.

This is how Amazon justifies its refusal to reap significant profits from its dominant online retail bazaar, as most every dollar earned is recycled back into shipping centers and server farms. It is how the company defends itself from charges that it is systematically putting smaller retail competitors out of business.

As I discuss in the attached video with Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Aaron Task, nothing Bezos told Charlie Rose on “60 Minutes,” in what amounted to a long corporate promotional video, was news to investors or to anyone who has followed Amazon since it went public as an upstart online bookseller in 1997.

Bezos long ago persuaded Wall Street that its refusal to charge more for products – its decision to pursue profitless prosperity in the service of selling everything the world has to offer – was a winning long-term strategy in an electronic retail world that rewards scale and speed. Its shares, to the eternal consternation of skeptics who adhere to traditional fundamental analysis, are up more than 26,000% since its IPO, and have doubled in the past two years.

Related: How Amazon’s Mayday Could Change Your World and Disrupt Apple

Bezos repeated, as he frequently does, the claim that Amazon’s internal “price-elasticity” studies always conclude the company should raise prices. His refusal to follow the pricing models’ advice is simply a way for an enormous, imperial company to wear its customer-friendliness on its sleeve. He’s probably right that being known for the best price engenders deep customer loyalty over time.

But it’s also very good PR, as is Bezos’ ostentatiously humble claim that he fully expects Amazon to be “disrupted” by newer competitors over time, and he is merely trying to forestall the decline that ultimately befalls most every company.

The delivery-drone “reveal” of course produced immediate buzzy chatter in social media, with mockery of safety concerns colliding with wonder over the extreme convenience such a service would represent. Maybe Bezos wanted to prompt just such an excited response.

Related: How Paper Towels Could Be Key to Amazon’s Growth: Will Lower Prices Follow?

Perhaps he prefers the conversation surrounding his company to be about its efforts to challenge even the rules of aviation and law of gravity to make his customers happier – rather than, say, his mention that the company’s Web-services business is building a “private cloud” for the CIA to use for its data needs.

What’s beyond doubt is that the glimpse of the drone plans was a highly strategic, calculated gesture of openness by a company that generally prefers to divulge as little as possible about its operations or intentions. Bezos refused even to acknowledge to Rose specific plans for another device, such as a new set-top box, that would appear far closer to fruition than octocopters touching down on front lawns.

And the message this sends is precisely the one Bezos wants to convey. He wants customers to “Ooh” and “Aahh” over its extreme efficiency today while resting assured that the company is always busy redeploying its profits to deliver audacious innovations that we haven’t asked for or even contemplated, all to bring us closer to Amazon’s version of a consumer paradise. “Look, up in the sky…”

Navy considers 3D-printing future fleets of drones

http://rt.com/usa/3d-navy-drones-printers-960/

Three-dimensional (3D) printers are quickly proving to be capable of creating just about anything out of little more than thin air, and that could be the military’s key to keeping an endless arsenal of drones at its disposal.

Just as 3D-printed organspizza and even firearms are being made with the post-modern machinery, the United States military is eyeing the up-and-coming technology as to further their upper-hand on the battlefield. Recently, a decorated member of the US Navy made an argument for adding unmanned aerial vehicles and even munitions to the list of items that can be made with little more than a well-equipped printer and a few clicks of a mouse.

drones1

Hobbyists and engineering students have already toyed with the idea of using 3D printers to make unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, but the Navy could piggyback on that idea to ensure that UAVs made to withstand military operations are soon a reality. In an article published this month in the Armed Forces Journal, Lt. Cmdr. Michael Llenza discussed what could be next in the works for the Navy.

For the Navy, the technology promises to shift inventory from the physical world to the digital one,” Llenza wrote. “Instead of actual parts, a ship might carry 3D printers and bags of various powdered ingredients, and simply download the design files needed to print items as necessary.”

What kind of items? According to Llenza, just about anything.

Today’s printers are generally limited to printing parts made of just one material, and variance is a big issue,” he said. “But the development of multiple-material devices is well underway, and the technology is racing ahead.”

The University of Virginia printed a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) controlled by a relatively cheap Android phone whose camera was used to shoot aerial imagery. Designed for a top speed of 45 mph, the aircraft crashed on its first flight. The students just went back to the lab and printed out a replacement nose cone, a capability envied by any squadron maintenance officer.

Before 3D printing can be used as a large-scale military inventory strategy, the structural stability of many materials needs to be more consistent — so right now, replacing critical pieces of machinery is out of the question.

Contour Crafting is a building-sized 3D printing system that produced drones (UAV) overnight.

The eventual goal is to print replaceable drones from ships – a drone that flies right out of the printer with electronics and motive power already in place!

Llenza went on to site recent stories where college students at the University of Virginia printed a UAV that was controlled by a handheld smart phone. Scientists are still working out the kinks with that technology, but it’s expected to only be a short while before drones done entirely using digital blueprints, a printer and a moldable polymer or plastic soar through the sky.

The eventual goal is a drone that flies right out of the printer with electronics and motive power already in place,” Llenza wrote.

Soon enough, he said, the Navy could likely harness that into something fit for the world’s most powerful military.
