SKEYE Nano Drone

SKEYE Nano Drone | Drone | Scoop.it

A quadcopter that fits in the palm of your hand. Appearing like a prop out of a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids/Star Wars mashup, the SKEYE's design takes cues from its larger brethren—including the HD camera-toting micro ZANO that recently caught the attention of amateur pilots and fledgling surveillance techs at CES. With three flight settings (expert, intermediate and thankfully an ultra-stable beginner mode) users can test their flight skills in varying environments with reduced fear of crashing due to the SKEYE's unprecedented size.

SenseFly's eXom Drone Uses Vision and Ultrasound to Fly Precisely, Safely

SenseFly's eXom Drone Uses Vision and Ultrasound to Fly Precisely, Safely | Drone | Scoop.it
Vision and ultrasonic sensors let this drone get up close and personal with anything at all

 

eXom flies "100% autonomously, without being remotely controlled and without the use of GPS. It is using its onboard vision and ultrasonic proximity sensors to stabilise, hold and correct its position, while the artificial intelligence built into its autopilot enables it to execute pre-programmed movements in sync with the music."

This drone is made for discrete surveillance and it is very good at it. It flies at about 45 km and when the battery becomes low or it's objective is done it flies back to its starting point on its own. If the drone sees a target it can make a tactical decision and fly farther away or closer to it. 

Joe Smith's comment, May 18, 2014 1:51 AM
It's impressive to know the drones can make their own practical decisions on their own when they see a target.

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Drone | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas.

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools
