HeliStorm commented on Isabella Domi's blog post Search and Rescue Smart Drone Project
"Nikola...good point! If machine learning is being used, give it another layer of information to parse data, and the system will be more effective. This is some very interesting research. I sent you an email, from emergentechrdi@gmail.com

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post MIT simulation system allows you design any configuration of drone (and know it will work)
"I wonder if you could pair this with a genetic algorithm to come up with some evolved aircraft."

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Visual obstacle avoidance with Centeye and Crazyflie
"For years now, on this site and others, I have been expressing my belief in micro UAS. The technology being packed into smaller, and smaller (and cheaper) packages is astounding. The one area where there seems to be room for significant improvement…"

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post RocketSpace/AT&T report on the future of drones
"Combine two through five, and, as I imagine, we will have small bird, and even insect sized aircraft capable of powering themselves through bio sources, working together to provide the capabilities of a larger system in a smaller collaborative swarm…"

HeliStorm commented on karen pineman's blog post Design Challenge to Aid Search & Rescue
"Joe Renteria...same tought goes through my head. I mean...you hang a pair of fake testicles from your truck because your truck alone is not manly enough? Is that the logic? Way off topic, of course. Now, on a quadcopter, I can se how they might be a…"

"Interesting. I have ideas, but never worked with 3D printing or design for 3D printing. Have done some CAD work in the past. May have to do some learning."

HeliStorm commented on Chris's blog post Queen B Robotics introduces the Exo360! 5 integrated 4K cameras for the ultimate VR experience
"I have thought, what if you have the, "raw data," as in video an IMU data saved for export and later post-processing. It could be stabilized and either distributed as 360 video, or edited down to normal, "2d," video with the the person directing the…"

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Bees bounce into things rather than navigate around them. How robobees could do the same
"I have been giving this some more thought, and I think there is a real potential for systems able to bounce around obstacles. One of my interests is search and rescue applications, but in particular the usage of smaller systems in wooded areas, unde…"

"Nature has engineered some very unique unmanned aerial systems. Self-guiding, self-fueling, self-manufacturing nano aircraft. It shows what is possible when you have billions of years to trial and error."

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New version of APM-powered Quanum Nova copter from Hobby King
"Does anyone have the original, and can attest to build quality? It looks kind of cheap plastic toy, to me, but the rest of the specs seem pretty good. I may have to give it a try. Maybe put the guts on something else."

HeliStorm replied to Monroe King's discussion Cameras for Micro Drones in Micro Drone
"I had considered piezoelectric before. Small, low energy, fast. What about something like DLP chips. Use the nano mirrors in reverse, rather than projecting images, focusing them on a sensor?"
