CNN did an episode on DIY Drones today. Good shots from the back of 3D Robotics, including clips of Jeff Taylor and Gigio Romero (Udrones) flying ArduPlane and ArduCopter.
Oh gosh, just wait until CNN learns that unmarked vans can and have been used for terror!Seriously though, at least they ended it on a positive note -- they just thought they also have an obligation to do the being scared on behalf of their audience part too. Will that fad ever pass? If the story is ever "what bad could come of this", that angle should be present in almost every piece of news since it is a possible (albeit usually far-fetched) take on just about anything.
Doesn't it give you a thrill to be slightly dangerous...? ;)
It isn't news; they sell advertisement slots, and provide entertainment and attention grabbing headlines in exchange. This is the state of our media, but even before that was the case, anyone granting an interview should always ask "what is this 'reporter' after? what does he/she need for the story?" Know this, before you speak, and you will be better prepared to help the media achieve its goals, while preventing your own message from being twisted. It will make both of you happier. Food for thought.
As for Chris, I think he got what he wanted from them ;)
"All publicity is good publicity" ;-)
Wow they really - us.
I think CNN inspired the terrorist... :)btw i'm wondering, does CIA spy on you guys in 3d robotics for selling drones ?
You''re nuts if you think they're not! I'd wager that there's more than one intelligence agency in the world that is keeping an eye on www.diydrones.com
My post was removed! maybe CIA / FBI also control this board. ;-)
Having worked intel--they're watching on how they can build drones with off the shelf parts instead--cause a $500k drone on tax payer dollars doesn't make great business sense to them (but great for their contractors!)
CNN always tries to play the scare card at the beginning of every story about new technology/biotech... well unless it's made by Apple. It's allows them (and other news agencies) to use "BREAKING NEWS!" tags everywhere.
