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 ...

Underwater vehicle creator thinks outside the bubble with the ‘The Platypus’ as seen in this video & pics

 UNDERWATER VEHICLE PLATYPUS CONCEPT ON TRACK THINKING OUTSIDE THE ‘BUBBLE’

Vehicles such as the EGO semi-submarine boat and Adventure-Doo are designed to bring the underwater action within reach of those without the time or inclination to put in the training required to get behind the controls of personal submarines like the offerings from U-boat Worx. But the Platypus underwater exploration vehicle from François-Alexandre Bertrand ditches the waterproof hull while giving users a taste of life beneath the waves. We first looked at the Platypus in concept form in 2011 and a prototype has now hit the water as it navigates the often-treacherous waters to commercial availability.

“The submersible has existed for a long time, but with a big bubble,” Bertrand tells Gizmag...

These Aerial Stunts You Should Do With Your Drone

So now you’ve got a drone, and a camera fitted to it. Then it’s time to learn some spectacular aerial acrobatics that will capture awesome video footage.

Anyone can shoot video. But not everyone can shoot interesting video—with aerial shots and POV footage that make you close your eyes until the feeling has passed. For that you need a drone. (Or a helicopter, which can be a little more expensive.) Master a few stunts and you enter a field of videography that’s an obsession among pro-sports producers—and guys like Jeremy Moulton, a drone pilot for Sketch Pad Media in Austin, Texas. Here are a few tricks he uses with his favorite gear, a Blade 350 QX quadcopter ($420) and a Spektrum DX6i DSM2 transmitter ($140). Just don’t add a camera until after you hone your skills.

WATCH DRONES FIGHT TO THE DEATH IN THESE VIDEOS HERE

In the world of drones, there exists an underground fight club where different UAVs go head-to-head trying to destroy each other. Alright, that’s a little dramatized, but the drones really do battle each other in a BattleBot-style arena. Marque Cornblatt, co-founder of the group Game of Drones, says it’s all about aerial combat and going drono-a-drono for victory.

This particular video (courtesy of Tested) was taken at Maker Faire, and it showcases something very interesting about the fights. While people seem to enjoy watching the drones attack, they also really enjoy learning about the engineering behind the drone, which is a good thing when you consider a lot of the time is spent repairing the quadcopters.

The rules of the game are simple: the first person to hit the floor three ti...

Sea-based attack drone flies into

history with first carrier launch

May 15 – The US Navy’s first sea-based, unmanned attack aircraft has been launched successfully from an aircraft-carrier at sea for the first time. The pilotless X-47B, developed by the navy and Northrop Grumman, is designed to take off, fly and land autonomously for missions the navy says will change the nature of sea-based warfare.

May 20 – Japanese security firm Secom has a warning for would-be robbers – keep your eye on the sky because a soon-to-be-launched security drone will track you down. The drone has been designed to fly to the scene of a break-in and wait until the perpetrator tries to leave

VIEWING THE EYE OF A VOLCANO AS SEEN BY A DRONE

MILITARY DRONE USED TO VIEW VOLCANO IN COTS RICA

Getting information on volcanic plumes can be perilous work: the unbearable heat; the noxious gas; the jagged terrain.

So NASA found a new way to avoid putting its researchers in danger – military drones.

AAA

Last month, NASA researchers sent three drones into a sulphur dioxide plume emitted by Costa Rica’s 3200-metre Turrialba volcano. The team, led by David Pieri of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge, launched 10 flights with the 2.7-kilogram, twin-electric-engine Dragon Eye planes.

The drones recorded video and collected data using several remote-sensing instruments, sulphur dioxide and particle sensors and automatic atmospheric sampling bottles that measure sulphur dioxide concentration.

”Scientists believe compute...

VIDEO OF THE MIGHTY POWER OF SUN FLARES – BE AMAZED

I THANK THE AUTHOR FOR THIS MIGHTY INSIGHT INTO THE SUN

If you look at our Sun the right way, it is magnificent. For proof, I offer this stunningly beautiful video of the nearest star taken on July 19, 2012 by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. If you can watch this without your jaw hanging open and your mind aflame with wonder, then I cannot help you.

What you’re seeing is the profound impact of magnetism on the material in the Sun. I’ve described this effect before (with lots of juicy details here), but in a nutshell: The gas inside the Sun is so hot it’s ionized, stripped of electrons...

TINY ROBOTS SWARM LIKE INSECTS TO CREATE A POWER FORCE

SWARMING OF SMALL DROPLET ROBOTS GIVE THEM EFFECT

Imagine if you could harness the productivity of an insect colony – hundreds, if not thousands of miniature agents working together towards a larger goal – that’s the future promised by swarm robotics. Potential applications, such as intelligent sensor networks, could have a wide-ranging impact on various industries. Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU-Boulder) are developing the technology with prototypes about the size of a ping-pong ball, which they have called “droplets.

Antmart B2B Deals

The robots contain RGB color and IR (infrared) sensing, skitter about thanks to vibrating motors, and can communicate using analog/digital IR sensors. Each droplet contains an Atmel XMega 128-A3 microprocessor capable of executing code.
