Recalculating! GPS may lead you astray
NBCNews.com
63% of u.s. drivers say gps has led them down the wrong path in the past. a lot of older folks complain that their kids who have been raised on gps never did learn how to read a map.
Tamitha Skov's insight:

It is clear the public agrees one cannot rely solely on GPS receivers for navigation. There should always be some kind of intelligence that serves to veto GPS commands when directions become innacurate. That much is obvious. Yet, the majority of people welcome pilotless, GPS drones with open arms. In fact, a sub-culture has emerged celebrating drones as ushering in the future. Depictions of drones in art, fashion, and science-fiction have increased exponentially (see article "Drone: Camera, Weapon, Toy" by P. Lichty above). When do we make the connection that the GPS signals, which steer us on to the railroad tracks in front of an oncoming train during inclement Space Weather, are the same GPS signals that drones use as their primary source for navigation?

Pizza delivery by drone | T + Biscuits

The DomiCopter is a project we worked on with Domino's Pizza and AeroSight, a UK based drone specialist.

Tamitha Skov's insight:

"Now you know how your future pizza and beer (see adjacent article) will be delivered. That is, as long as the Space Weather is good. Otherwise, your next door neighbor (or perhaps one a few hundred meters away) might be getting a free lunch."
