Drones are SO hot right now. Photography, film, and package delivery are just a few of the pursuits these unmanned airborne devices are revolutionizing. And if this new Ericsson marketing film is on the right track, it’s only going to get bigger. Much bigger.
The Drone Boss 3000 is basically an unmanned freight drone, able to move ship container-sized packages and even entire houses. Of course, it doesn’t exist yet, but as this short B2B video by agency DDB Stockholm assures us, it’s on the way. The soothsaying is an ad for the brand’s Industry Watch newsletter that aims to tell clients what’s coming on the business technology horizon.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
