Yeah, I know, April Fool’s was a week ago, and I missed seeing this one. I would definitely sign up for this technology. I can dream.

A charming use of drone technology. Kaz and Mariko Yamaguchi, from Kyoto, took a 400-day honeymoon to 48 countries and captured some beautiful video via drone. The BBC News bit on their experience is also worth the watch:
A federal judge has dismissed a case filed by a drone owner against the self-described “drone-slayer” for shooting down the drone. The drone owner brought the lawsuit under federal and FAA violations, but the judge found that this was a civil (tort) matter under state jurisdiction. Moral of the story: Shooting down drones that violate […]
Nice 10 minute interlude for a Friday. Hard to believe this is real. (Hint: The voiceover is very typically from the 50’s. If that grates on your nerves, it’s just as entertaining to watch without the sound.)
Very cool. ICYMI this latest bit of space technology news, NASA reported the discovery of 7 planets that have the potential to support life around a dwarf star 40 light years away. Stellar news.
Wow – the Internet has changed a little since 1984. Here’s how you get email in the ’80’s: Check out the password. And the “software transmission” at the end of the broadcast. Psychadelic.
Be sure you click through the video to the Vimeo post to learn about all the places visited and the details of the photo shoots. Amazing. Magical Europe – Timelapse from StanChang on Vimeo.
All I need is a pre-teen or teenager to drive the snow shovel. And a hoverboard.
See… Math is important.
I know people who are clever enough (and have access to a quality 3D printer) to build this for me for Christmas. (Hint, hint) The sundial in action (less then 2 minutes): The math and programming behind it (15-minute video)
Check out OKGO’s newest video. The way they manipulate time and perspective to capture a moment is amazing. And, check out the “behind the scenes” video to see the thinking and planning that went into the video:
FutureLawyer comments on various alternative office options in his terrific lawyer tech blog. However, I don’t think he’s ever considered a retired 727.
Easier said than done.
I never followed the Spice Girls back in the ’90s, though I certainly heard them on the radio. Found this song on YouTube when looking for something else (which is usually when I find interesting things). The song is fun and catchy, and has been used and abused, like any good pop song. What’s interesting […]
Fascinating. I have always wondered why, if Europeans nearly wiped out the Native Americans with their diseases, the opposite did not happen. 12-minute video, but very much worth the watch.
