Road to nowhere: Could drones be the highways of the future?

Posted: June 3, 2013 by vineyardofthefuture in News, Uncategorized

From CNN Tech:

(CNN) — Going off-road used to mean tearing up dirt tracks in a powerful four-by-four or gigantic monster truck.

For two ambitious tech start-ups however, the term has come to comprise something more subtle and potentially revolutionary.

For the past 18 months Matternet and Aria — separate companies born out of the the same Silicon Valley incubator — have been working towards creating a roving network of automated drones that will help connect rural and under-developed areas with little access to existing road or highway systems.

While the idea may sound far-fetched to those unfamiliar with the latest in civilian drone technology, preliminary vehicle testing has already taken place.

Is Seattle Being Buzzed By Drone-Equipped Peeping Toms?

From Flipboard News


From the Yes-We-Live-In-The-Future file we have the story of an unnamed Seattle woman who looked out her upper-floor window a couple of weeks ago to allegedly find an aerial drone hovering outside. On the sidewalk next to her house, on public property, she also found the man operating the drone, which we must assume is similar to the one in the image below, complete with video camera. This man — who is also nameless at this point — claimed that he was doing research and that what he was doing was “perfectly legal”. And while the whole situation does sound creepy, it turns out that he may be well within his rights.
