Machine Gun Drones Are Proof That We Live in a Cyberpunk Dystopia

Machine Gun Drones Are Proof That We Live in a Cyberpunk Dystopia | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
The Songar drone is a regular unmanned aerial vehicle -- that just so happens to come with a mounted machine gun and 200 rounds of ammunition for riddling targets with bullets from the sky. Here's how it works, and how its aerial targeting capabilities could shape up on the battlefield.

How Drones could save Millions of Lives







Drone technology is increasingly being used to provide remote care, supplement emergency responses, and generally decrease the time it takes for people to get the medical attention that they need.

Wyatt Mizell's curator insight, September 20, 2019 3:09 PM
This video talks about how drones could be useful in the medical field, an example is that a patient was waiting for an organ to arrive at the hospital she was having surgery at and took days for the organ to arrive so they could start the surgery. I personally think that if we used drones for shipping items faster it would be a great benefit . Some problems with this is that say the drone somehow breaks in the process of shipment you could risk damage to whatever is being shipped. Also the number of jobs such as UPS and FEDex drivers would decrease a significant amount.

The rules on drone use in Luxembourg | #Europe #Laws #Drones

The rules on drone use in Luxembourg | #Europe #Laws #Drones | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it

The disruption caused by drones at London's Gatwick Airport in late December, and most recently on Tuesday evening at Heathrow Airport, has prompted the British government to tighten regulations governing the use of such devices, but what are the rules in Luxembourg?

The Civil Aviation Authority in Luxembourg recently published a brochure entitled "Unmanned Aircraft", aiming to inform the public about what is permitted, and indeed not permitted regarding the use of drones in the country.

First and foremost, drones cannot be used in the vicinity of airports and aerodromes.

Luxembourg rules are quite stringent compared to some other countries, and drones for public use are prohibited from flying over people, animals, motorways, railways, vehicles, and of course manned aircraft.

The Grand Duchy is the only country in the Greater Region where the use of dashcams in vehicles is not permitted and therefore the same rules regarding surveillance where drones are concerned, also applies.

Both the take-off and landing of drones must take place in a safe open area and fly at least five metres above the ground and must not exceed 50 metres.

Drones can only fly between sunrise and sunset in Luxembourg.

This New "Super Wood" Is as Strong as Steel

This New "Super Wood" Is as Strong as Steel | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it

Wood is great. It looks nice as a building material. It grows right out of the ground. But compared to things like concrete, marble, and steel, it's not all that strong. Well, it didn't used to be, anyway. Scientists have now created a "super wood" that's strong enough to stop a bullet.
Daniel Ayalas insight:
"Super wood" stronger than steel and some titanium alloys. Cheap to produce.  Lightweight. This new material can directly benefit drones by lowering their cost while increasing their fuel-efficiency.  This is a good alternative to replace the plastic that is currently being used on drones; we do not need anymore plastic in our environment.
