The Knuffeldrone crew held an educational event for children age 7-10 at SXSW earlier this year in Austin. Knuffeldrones loosely translated means Cuddly Drones. Translated from Dutch, Via Knuffeldrones.nl
Will everybody have a drone in 10 years? Is a drone smarter than a guinea pig? Should everyone just buy a drone?
While drones were once known primarily from news reports about military missions, they are becoming increasingly affordable and useful to civilians. Scientists design drones with new functions like cleaning drones to treat chemical waste or drones that assist in studying monkeys in the jungle. People buy more and more drones, kits to experiment with at home. Snowboarders film their tricks with drones… It is high time to start thinking about a world in which we all have our own drone. What would you do with a personal drone? Which drones would you rather not encounter every day?
The website is all in Dutch, but there are some great photos of youngsters enjoying the inspired Knuffeldrone workshops!
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.
