We bet You Never Knew That Kodak Has A FPV Sport Drone

We bet most of you never knew Kodak has a drone under its portfolio too. Well, they sure do. The Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is the said drone, sold through Thrust-UAV, a drone manufacturer that’s also an authorized Kodak brand licensee and a subsidiary of PCS Edventures!, a company that deals in K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs. Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is, as the product name implies, a sport drone. Continue reading We bet You Never Knew That Kodak Has A FPV Sport Drone

Here’s A Consumer-grade Mind-controlled Drone Money Can Buy

I am not sure how to begin, but here goes… This is UDrone, a so-called “mind-controlled” FPV drone, that lets you pilot a drone hands-free and has built-in gesture recognition. It has an onboard HD camera that takes photos by blinking of eyes (not quite the best idea for obvious reason, IMHO), or flashing the “V” hand gesture, and it also does real-time video transmission.

Death From The Sky: Russian Arms Maker Proposed A Flying Assault Rifle

What you are looking at is a patent filed with the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property (an equivalent of USPTO) by Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey in 2018 that feels somewhat like a weapon straight out Iron Sky (2012, Entertainment One). It is a drone that was apparently designed around a conventional assault rifle which is kind of wacky if you ask me. We all know how long a clip lasts and so… like, why would a presumably combat drone limit itself with 30-something rounds? Perhaps, it could accept drum magazine? It possibly could.

Airbus Trials World’s First Shore-to-Ship Deliveries In Singapore

Here’s another world’s first happening in tiny island state of Singapore. Airbus’ Skyways Parcel Delivery Drone has begun trial of shore-to-ship delivery in Singapore. Obviously, cargo delivery isn’t new, but as far as shore-to-ship delivery, this is the first. With this trial, it marks the first time drone technology has been deployed in real port conditions to delivery a variety of small, time-critical maritime essentials to working vessels at anchorage, said Airbus.

Xiaomi Takes On DJI With A Pair Of New Imaging Drones

Xiaomi is no stranger to imaging drones, or should I say, no stranger to imaging drones with a striking resemblance to the world’s biggest consumer drone maker, DJI, with the specs too boot and at a manageable price point The China’s “provision of gadgets” latest imaging drones are no different. The duo, namely FIMI A3 and FIMI X8 SE, shares some rather close resemblance to DJI’s Mavic 2 and Spark. Clearly, the pair have their sights set on DJI Spark and DJI Mavic Air, and they even have pricing and specs that could do some serious bite off the consumer drone cake.

Yikes. Maker Of AK-47 Assault Rifle Revealed Kamikaze Drone

Drones that kill are nothing new, but one that reminds the world of the horrific images of Japanese’s WWII warplanes doing Kamikaze run is disturbingly new. Such was what maker of AK-47 assault rifle, Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov, has unveiled. Jointly developed by Kalashnikov and Russian UAV specialist ZALA AERO, this unmanned combat aerial system called KYB-UAV was unveiled at the International Defence Exhibition (IDEX) in UAE, late last month.

This Tiny Drone Designed For Indoor Reconnaissance Uses A Co-axial Setup

We have seen a lot of small imaging drones on this blog, but this little guy from Cleo Robotics is unlike anything we have seen. Resembling a donut, Cleo is a UFO-ish small imaging drone designed specifically for indoor flight and as such, it certainly has no qualms in zipping around tight spaces – thanks in part to its donut-shaped protective outer rim and caged rotor unit. Speaking of rotor… what makes Cleo unique is, it employs a co-axial rotor setup, which involved two propellers aligned on the same vertical but spinning in opposite directions, to achieve flight.

SITEWASP Drone Will Cut Construction Progress inspection To Hours

Despite the advancement in building and construction industry, there is at least one process that technology cannot do and that is progress inspection, or is it? This futuristic drone you see here called SITEWASP (that has a look in the league of Half-Life City Scanner), designed by Germany product service designer Sebastian Gier, might just change that. Combining a drone’s maneuverability and its circular design, internal sensors and cameras, this 3D drone system affords architects, engineers and construction managers, 200 degrees rotation and view.
