Super quick follow-me camera drone uses artificial intelligence to be a better cameraman -Watch videos

Ever since that notorious Lily drone video went massively viral back in 2015, scores of companies have been scrambling to build super-portable, automatic, follow-me camera drones.

The latest to cross our desk is the Staaker, and it has a few tricks up its sleeve that could set it apart from the crowd.

Like many of these things, it’s controlled not by a traditional R/C unit, but through a GPS tracker that can be strapped onto your wrist, or wherever else is appropriate. Controls appear minimal – while you can fly it via the buttons on the tracker, it’s designed to operate mainly in one of several follow modes.

These include a simple follow,...

Amphibious HexH2o drone shoots both aerial and underwater video

The HexH2o can land on the water and shoot below the surface

www.h2o-water.com

Readers who checked out our recent article on the Seahorse human-powered airboat may have noticed something at least as impressive in the accompanying video – a camera-equipped quadcopter that can land on the water to shoot underwater footage. It’s called the QuadH2o, and is made by a Thailand-based company of the same name. Now, that drone is about to be joined by a companion that sports another two propellers, along with some other extra features. It’s time to say hello to the HexH2o.

It houses a DJI Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal, upon which users can mount their own GoPro Hero came...

Like the QuadH2o, the HexH2o has an epoxy fiber/carbon fiber waterproof body that floats. This means that users can fly it out to a spot on a reasonably calm body of water, land it, get shots of whatever’s lurking below the surface, then take off again.

According to one of the company ...

TIME LAPSE VIDEO PHOTOGRAPHY OVER 6 MONTHS IN SPACE SHOWS IT ALL TO YOU HERE IN 6 MINUTES

During his six-month “Blue Dot” mission on the International Space Station, German astronaut Alexander Gerst would often leave his camera running while he worked and did experiments.

He shared many of the resulting images during his journey, which turned him into something of a social media celebrity – Twitter’s introduction to the awe-inspiring views of space travel.

Now back on Earth, Gerst has released a six-minute timelapse made up of some of the best shots from his ISS tenure. The video includes auroras, clouds, stars, oceans, lit-up cities, lightning and glimpses of both the ISS and other spacecraft.

This image shows the boot of Italy with Sicily at its toe, spread across this panorama taken on October 21 by astronaut Alexander Gerst aboard the International Space Station. Photo: N...

Explore the Eiry Ruins of Chernobyl Through the Eyes of a Drone

A drone armed with video equipment recently flew over the skies of Pripyat, a Ukrainian city that was home to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. After the disaster, the city was abandoned, though some curiosity seekers have explored the ruins of the irradiated city.

Danny Cooke took the footage while working on a 60 Minutes segment, providing a rare aerial view of the city. Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl captures some startling contrasts, filming abandoned, decayed swing sets alongside resurgent plant life. In some cases, the plant life has taken over buildings, invading abandoned swimming pools.

Fast decaying isotopes have let radiation levels drop to acceptable levels for exploration in the Zone of Alienation, though no one still lives in Pripyat, and many of the buildings have decay...

AirDog drone automatically follows you and films your sporting feats

airdog-gopro drone images www.spy-drones (5)

Typical. You wait ages for an autonomous aerial camera drone and then two come along at once. We featured Squadrone System’s Hexo+ drone yesterday and today it’s the turn of the AirDog from Helico Aerospace Industries. Like the Hexo+, the AirDog will track the user and film them from above.

Both Squadrone System and Helico are based out of Palo Alto, and are both claiming that their respective devices are the world’s first of their type. Consumer drones are targeted to a large extent at the action-sports market and this is where these autonomous drones can really excel. Much like with autonomous vehicles, these drones are able to track their route and make smooth adjustments without the possibility of human error.

SEVERAL SPECTACULAR NASA SCENES OF SPACE SEEN HERE

Unsatisfied with the officious sounding NGC 5189, in December 2012, the media boffins at NASA romantically described this gaseous cluster as “a glass-blown holiday ornament with a glowing ribbon entwined”.

But really, this puff of glowing gas is the last moments in the life of a medium-sized star, about the size of our Sun

This image of the Lena River Delta in Siberia was taken by a Landsat satellite buzzing over 700 kilometres above Earth.

At 4,400 km long, The Lena River is one of the largest rivers in the world.

It looks like “part of some vascular network in a living body; a mixture of chaos and organisation,” says Prof. Lineweaver

MORE DETAILED CLOSEUPS OF US HERE ON PLANET EARTH FROM SPACE NOW THAT MANY RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED

Lifting restrictions on satellite images means

even more detailed close-ups from space

You’ve got mail. We know because we can see your letterbox from space.

VIEW OF NEIGHBOURHOOD FROM SPACE CAMERA IMAGE www.spy-drones.com

In a major shake-up for satellite imagery, the US government has lifted restrictions on the level of detail that commercial satellites can capture, sell and publish.

Previously, features smaller than 50cm had to be pixelated or not used at all. The removal of that caveat means images showing close-up detail of streets, homes and persons can be publicly traded.

The high-resolution images have myriad commercial applications encompassing mining and oil, disaster management, economics and urban planning.

It may also mean more close-ups on consumer mapping services such as Google Maps and Bing Maps which currently rely on aerial photograp...

SWARM OF ROBO DRONE BEES MAP OUT 3D IMAGE OF A SWISS MOUNTAIN

THOUSANDS OF IMAGES CREATED BY ROBOTIC BEE SWARM TO GIVE 3D IMAGE

A spin-off company of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), called senseFly, develops and assembles autonomous mini-drones and related software solutions. The company’s eBee drone has a flight time of up to 45 minutes, allowing it to cover areas of up to almost four square miles in a single flight. With its small 16-MP camera it can shoot high-resolution aerial imagery. CEO Jean-Christophe Zufferey describes how the company recently launched three lightweight eBee drones around the beautiful Matterhorn mountain, in the Swiss Alps. Over six hours and multiple flights, the mini-drones took almost 3,000 images...

FLY EYE IN THE SKY WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY IN CAMERA CONCEPT

Taking their cue from nature, engineers have built a camera using stretchable electronics that scans the world like a fly’s compound eye — with a wide field of view and no distortion, they say.

The digital device, which has a multitude of tiny, pliable lenses like those found in ant, beetle, and lobster eyes, also allows for a near-infinite depth of field and high motion sensitivity, the team wrote in the journal Nature.

“We’ve figured out ways to make cameras that incorporate all of the essential design features of eyes found in the insect world,” study co-author John Rogers of the University of Illinois’ engineering department told AFP.
“The result is a new type of camera that offers exceptionally wide-angle fields of view (nearly 180 degrees) with zero aberrations and uniform illum...
