Unending A Intel Chatbot Convos Are Terrifying but Beautiful

ai-chatbots-talking-sketch-image-www-spydrones-net

As artificially intelligent virtual assistants like the Amazon Echo and Google Home become more common and advanced, they’re going to be used for all kinds of new functions. In the past few months alone we’ve seen them brought into police investigations, used to entertain children and maybe even help save a life. But forget all that for a minute. Without question, the most fascinating (albeit creepy) function for these chatty little devices is hours of mindless entertainment — happening right now.

On Twitch, you can go watch two modified Google Homes (“named” Vladimir and Estragon) chat ceaselessly. The conversation, which apparently started on January 2, has been viewed by over 184,000 people so far. Early Friday, the discussion got pretty philosophical.

DRONE EYE VIDEO VIEWS of the Apple Campus 2 construction – April 2015 – building going up

Drone footage shows off Apple’s upcoming spaceship campus

Drone footage of Apple’s ‘spaceship’

Amazing new drone footage of Apple’s new campus in California under construction.

While we’ve previously seen far-off images of Apple’s upcoming campus, new footage gives a glimpse of the building’s true scale.

Filmed via drone by YouTuber Duncan Sinfield, the footage provides a flyover of what will eventually be Apple’s second main base of operations.

Since 2012, the tech giant and world’s richest company has been busy constructing the spaceship-like building to support its interminable growth.

Earth from Space: NASA 15 Amazing Things in 15 Years. Enjoy this journey.

NASA and other space agencies had launched satellites to study Earth before. But the past 15 years have produced a more comprehensive look at Earth from space than any other period in history. At a time when our planet is undergoing critically important changes, this global view offers not only stunning imagery but also vitally important information about how Earth is changing.

To celebrate 15 successful years of the Earth Observing System, we’ve collected 15 impressive, awe-inducing or simply just plain interesting images gathered by NASA’s three flagship Earth orbiters since the Terra launch.

Enjoy. And here’s to the next 15.

Version 3.0 of Aeromobil flying car unveiled, see pics & video here

aeromobil-flyingcar-images www.spy-drones (3)

It may still sound like the stuff of science fiction, but the AeroMobil flying car is close to a final design. The AeroMobil 3.0 prototype was premiered today at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna. The roadster-cum-light-aircraft is being tested to refine final performance and features.

The AeroMobil first took to the skies last year as version 2.5. According to the company, the new version was developed and built in the 10 months after the release of version 2.5 and is “very close to the final product.”

“I’m very happy with what we were able to achieve in such a short time with the team of only 12 people,” says AeroMobil co-founder and CTO Stefan Klein. “AeroMobil 3...

IMPRESSIVE AEROBATICS DONE BY FLAPPING WINGS ROBOTIC BIRD DRONE SHOWN HERE IN VIDEO

ARE WE DUPLICATING REAL FLYING BIRDS WITH NEW ‘FLAP’ TECHNOLOGY

University of Maryland professors S. K. Gupta and Hugh Bruck have created a robotic bird named Robo Raven, whose wings flap completely independently of each other and can be programmed to perform any desired motion – enabling it to perform aerobatic maneuvers. This is the first time a robotic bird with these capabilities has been built and successfully flown. Gupta and Bruck first successfully demonstrated a flapping-wing bird in 2007. This robot used one motor to flap both wings together in simple motions. By 2010 the design had evolved over four successive models, but the limitation of simultaneous wing flapping restricted how well it could fly...

ROBOTIC SPIDER WALKS TALKS & AVOIDS OBJECTS AS SEEN IN THIS VIDEO

ROBOTIC SPIDER AVOIDS OBJECTS WHILST TALKING-VIDEO

robot-charlotte

There are robots that walk around like spiders, there are robots that avoid objects, and there are robots that talk, but what about a robot spider that talks while avoiding objects? Hobbyist Kevin Ochs’ creation, Charlotte, is just that. Charlotte is a hexapod robot with a talking head that lets it narrate its progress as it avoids collisions.

Charlotte is an in-progress project started by Ochs as a way of brushing up on his C++ programming skills. It began life a commercially available robot kit sold by Trossen Robotics that Ochs equipped with a brain in the form of a Raspberry Pi overclocked to 1000Mhz running on C++ with custom coding.

Click on READ MORE for video

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a Micro Unmanned Aerial vehicle (MAV) that can grab objects on the fly with all the elegance of an eagle snatching a fish from the water’s surface. Although MAVs and UAVs are increasingly being equipped to pick up, transport, and drop off payloads, we’ve never seen this incredibly precise form of grasping on the fly replicated – until now.

The similarity to an eagle’s hunting ability is no coincidence – University of Pennsylvania research team members Justin Thomas, Joe Polin, Koushil Sreenath and Vijay Kumar, programmed the quadrotor MAV based on observations garnered from nature videos...
