For years, extreme sports enthusiasts worldwide are raving about GoPro’s camera line-up. The original HD Hero first produced HD stills and wide-angle videos in 2009. These capabilities improved with the higher resolution sensor, faster burst mode, and wider field of view of the Hero2. GoPro rolled out the Hero3 recently, which packs an even greater performance in a cube.

Chris Anderson, DIY Drones/3D Robotics - XOXO Festival (2013)

Ex-WIRED editor, GeekDad founder, and DIYDrones bossman Chris Anderson talks about his interest in drones and robotics in this talk he gave at XOXO.

It really resonated with me, starting in 2:47, where he talks about the challenges of teaching elementary robotic when kids have unrealistic Hollywood versions of robots stuck in their heads. How can a simple rolling robot compete with a Transformer — “real robotics is hard, and it takes forever to do anything,” Chris says.

Chris built the world’s first Lego Mindstorms autopilot, which now resides in the Lego Museum in Billund, Denmark. Later on he founded DIY Drones, which brought drones to the mainstream of hobby electronics, not to mention the realm of drone-assisted agriculture, which is a topic Chris covers a great deal in this talk. Check it out!
