Couple Caught Having Sex by Drone

drone pilot attempting to take an aerial video of a church steeple got a shocking surprise this week as he caught a couple having sex on camera.

While this video has done the rounds online, some have questioned its veracity,Read More

US defence ‘Star Wars II’ Donald Trump new plan

The strategy to beef up the interception of enemy missiles included a “space-based missile defence layer” that the president said was “ultimately going to be a very, very big part of our defence and obviously of our offence”.

Planting Seeds From The Sky

Three years ago, Juan Carlos Sesma had a realization. Global warming and climate change seemed to be a mounting problem, with scientific records indicating rising temperatures and sea levels across the world. At the heart of this issue was a conjoined catalyst. Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) were building up in our atmosphere. At the same time forest fires, logging, and aggressive human expansion meant the supply of trees which help to regulate and remove this CO2 from our atmosphere was dwindling.  He decided the best way to tackle a problem this large was to combine two of the most powerful forcesRead More

DJI’s Refreshed Smartphone Video Gimbal Is Now Way Cheaper and Whole Lot Better

Videos shot on smartphones have a very specific, very low-rent aesthetic. A whole host of stabilizers are available on the market that try to improve that aesthetic—eradicating the shaky cam look so you can actually see whatever the smartphone’s camera is looking at. DJI even has one! The original Osmo Mobile was a pricey handheld stabilizer with some good ideas and a whole lot of big flaws. The Osmo Mobile 2, announced today, looks like it improves on almost every point of contention, and even better, DJI has slashed the price. This thing costs just $130. The original Osmo MobileRead More

DJI’s New Mavic Air Is So Small It Fits in a Jacket Pocket

DJI’s New Mavic Air Is So Small It Fits in a Jacket Pocket DJI just revealed a new, delightfully tiny drone called the Mavic Air. It’s a lot like the DJI Spark, announced last year, but its rotor arms fold in making the little bitty aircraft even more little bitty. If you set the Mavic Air on the table next to your smartphone, you’d find they have about the same size footprint. The drone is a lot fatter, though. As the name implies, the Mavic Air is a smaller, sleeker version of the Mavic Pro. The company’s presenter on stageRead More

DJI’s New Osmo Gimbal Is the Rare Phone Accessory That’s Actually Worth It

DJI’s New Osmo Gimbal Is the Rare Phone Accessory That’s Actually Worth It Running around the office with the DJI Osmo Mobile 2, I got a lot of questions. Specifically I got exactly two questions repeatedly. The first was about what I was holding. Each time, I explained that the weird selfie stick-like contraption I’d put my phone in was a mechanized gimbal that automatically stabilizes my phone as I move around, so I can shoot video footage so smooth it looks like it was shot with the aid of a professional Steadicam. Then I’d jostle the little joystick onRead More
