Drone Captures Video Of A Surfer, 13, Rescuing A Boat Passenger

Kevin Cadby, a drone operator in Jupiter, Florida, recently used his drone to capture some amazing video, video of an impromptu rescue. It was just coincidence, but Cadby used his drone to record a brave 13-year-old surfer named Sam Ruskin saving a life. The scene seemed normal at first but quickly turned as he watched the boat toppling into the Jupiter Inlet. Luckily for the boat passenger, Sam was there.

In Russia We Have Drone Vs. Spear … Spear Wins

You can file the video below as both "accurate" and "unexpected." Watch below to see a medieval reenactment take an odd twist as a Russian gentleman decides to hurl his spear at a flying drone. Apparently he has spent "many a fortnight" practicing because around 16 seconds in you can see the drone take a [...]

Simulating Aerial Photography: A How-to Guide

On VertWorx, I recently highlighted the Public Lab Squid Kite, that can help you capture some aerial shots on a shoe-string budget. Chung Dha has another solution; he uses his Samsung Galaxy S8, a smooth phone gimbal and 5 meter boom pole. This combination is definitely more expensive then the Public Lab solution, however the [...]

Watch NVIDIA Navigate Airspace and Around Obstacles without GPS

Where would your drone be without GPS? Most likely grounded. However that's not the case for all drones. NVIDIA, known for their high performance graphics cards and parallel processing GPUs, is working on a drone that navigates using machine vision. The machine vision is powered by NVIDIA Jetson TX1 embedded AI supercomputers. Although initially designed to [...]

BIKI the World’s First Bionic Unmanned Underwater Drone

Drones have conquered the sky and now they aim to conquer the sea. I've covered a few underwater drones on this blog before (like OpenROV, Aquabotix and iBubble), but this is undeniably the cutest one to date. Why? The BIKI drone, from Robosea, was designed to look like a fish, and they did a pretty good [...]

Watch the Solar Powered SUWAVE Drone Lake Hop

When I read about the Sherbrooke University Water-Air VEhicle (SUWAVE) I was impressed to say the least. This fixed wing drone cleverly combines solar charging with a unique hinged propeller to literally hop (from lake to lake) its way to its final destination. With a clever mechanism that allows it to efficiently take off and land [...]

Video: DJI Inspire Destruction :(

If you are like most drone pilots, then you have nightmares about your very expensive hardware getting destroyed accidentally. For the MadMedia team, it became more than a nightmare. It’s hard to say how one might react if it were their pricey DJI Inspire drone that was taken out of the sky by an adrenaline-fueled [...]
