15 Unlucky Drones That Crashed Into Buildings.Watch Videos

Drones are great fun to fly but when obstacles get in the way, your landing might not always be a pleasant one.

Skyscrapers and other buildings that jut up into a drone’s natural domain remain one of a quadcopters most dangerous enemies. Here are 15 examples.From PM.

Drone vs. Building

When the quadcopter flies up to high and loses signal, it typically enters “return to home” mode and autopilot takes over. This is far better than just falling out of the sky, but it can be a problem when there’s something like a building in the way. Observe!

Sometimes, it will even hit a building in the way, twice.

Amazon foresees drone-delivery towers for urban areas

This cylindrical hive is Amazon’s vision of a UAV delivery center, where trucks can deliver loads of items for aerial last-mile delivery by swarms of multicopter drones (Credit: USPTO

A patent filed by Amazon outlines the company’s vision for vertical drone delivery hives that could be destined for urban centers. These tall, multilevel cylinders would receive truck freight at the ground level, with robots then loading up delivery drones that would leave and return through dozens of windows dotted up the sides of the structure.

Amazon’s vast order fulfillment centres are already otherworldly...

 AMATEUR VIDEO USING DRONE OF APPLES NEW SPACESHIP HEADQUARTERS  IN SILICON VALLEY

Amateur video footage taken by a drone and uploaded to YouTube reveals the enormous scale of Apple’s new “spaceship” headquarters now under construction in Silicon Valley, California.

The video shows a massive construction site, reinforced concrete foundations and what looks to be the gargantuan underground carpark that is designed to hide the eyesore of an outdoor parking lot.

The building, designed the British architectural firm Foster + Partners, is a four-storey, circular edifice built around a 60 hectare landscaped park. The complex will accommodate 12,000 employees.

The park at the core “would replicate the original California landscape, and parts of it would also recapture the orchards of [Silicon...

HIGHRISE BUILDINGS STRUCTURAL DAMAGE CHECKS BY SAM THE ROBOTIC DRONE IN THIS VIDEO

HIGHRISE BUILDINGS STRUCTURE CHECKS BY ROBOTIC DRONE SAM

If you were responsible for the upkeep of a 20-story-tall building, you wouldn’t just stand on the ground and look up at it to see if it needed any structural repairs. Instead you’d hire a building inspection service, which would lower inspectors down the side of the building on a swing stage or bosun chair, like window cleaners use. The folks at FTD Highrise Inspection, however, are now using something that they claim is a superior alternative – a highrise-inspecting robot they created, called SAM.

The robot doesn’t actually cling to the side of the building like Spider-Man, but instead uses a roof-mounted custom rigging system...
