SciAm: Personal Drones - Are They a Public Hazard?

Fluff again. Please show a video of a drone, sans bladeguards yet using higher performance carbon-fiber blades, impacting something the approximate density of human flesh. They’re like high speed paring knives. Even shuriken.

SERoundtable: YouTube Now Lets You Import Your Google+ Videos.

Of course, with this, rumors will/have spread more that Google+ is dying and Google is going to kill it off. Vic Gundotra left and there have been signs of it dying since.

Um ... I’ve been using Emulsio (iDevices) for a while now to smooth out smartphone/tablet video. No hipster cred, but it doesn’t impose that fast-speed routine on your footage.

Vimeo: Tone.

Cool. Notice how it just wouldn’t be the same without the music.

Tangential: I’ve been running across a lot of folks posting ‘how-to’ videos, using completely inappropriate music to intro their vids.  Dynamic music, lots of aural ‘movement’ — to be followed by a person talking in a monotone against a blank background. The word ‘appropriateness’ comes to mind.

Mashable: A Yellowstone Tourist Crashed a Drone Into One of the World’s Largest Springs.

#^@#%$@$$ The hot springs in Yellowstone rely on very fragile geologic phenomena. It could just calcify over and become part of the spring, or, if heavy enough, could sink and destroy or plug ‘plumbing.’  Trying to fish it out of superheated water, surrounded by fragile calcification, is a major operation. The Yellowstone park service should put up signs with an IM/phone number to report drone sightings immediately.

Art of VFX: Donstroy “Heart of The Capital” - Making of by CGF.

Yeah, I know. But it’s cool.  I spent a lot of time modelling in Strata and form•z. I miss doing work in form•z. I actually created a completely imaginary medical sampling machine that ended up being a prototype for a NJ company. One of my ‘other lives’.

PDN: Up in the Sky - New DJI Drone Ready for Pro Camera Work.

18 minutes of flight time on a breezeless day, six feet off the ground. Ain’t much. But when’s the last time you sat through a ten minute single-shot? Hmmm? 60 seconds is a very long time in the video editing suite.

Fire Engineering: Drone Causes Problems at California Wildfire.

Another dimbulb who can’t think beyond the end of his nose. This is why the FAA may look to pilot training for drone operators; one needs to have knowledge of air operations.  Thanks, Mark!
