FAA committee says small drones should be allowed to fly over cities and crowds


A working group commissioned by the Federal Aviation Administration has released a set of recommendations for how small drones should be regulated, opening a path for commercial drone flight over populated cities, and even creating a special class of drones that would be allowed to fly over large crowds at low altitudes. The report argues that drones that weigh 250 grams or less should be allowed...

New drone video shows Apple’s massive new spaceship campus is coming together


Apple’s new headquarters is no simple office building. Yes, it looks like a UFO. And, yes, it is estimated to cost close to $5 billion dollars. But it is shaping up impressively ahead of its planned late 2016 or early 2017 completion date. Just a few months ago, the buildings appeared to be in little more than their primordial stage. Now, the latest aerial drone video of the Cupertino, CA...

If drone racing is the sport of the future, how will we watch it?


There has been a growing excitement around the prospect of a new sporting league where competitors race that very futuristic sounding vehicle, a drone. By drone they mean small remote controlled quadcopters, incredibly agile little aircraft that can move at speeds of over 100 miles and hour. Unlike most racing sports — cars, horses, dog sleds — there is no human onboard the drone. The pilots are...

Bird’s-eye view: using Avegant’s Glyph headset to pilot a drone


Despite my best efforts over the years I have never managed to master the art of lucid dreaming. My nightly visions come and go as they please. So when a dream arrives and I find myself flying, it’s always an unexpected and terrifying treat. But earlier this week I found myself soaring above the earth, skyscrapers in the distant background, ships gently rocking on the water below. I was wide...

Is Drone Racing the High-Speed Sport of the Future?


Images courtesy of the Drone Racing League Competitive drone racing feels like a video game come to life. Flying robots zoom through space at speeds pushing 80 miles per hour, navigating enormous courses laid out in subway tunnels, abandoned buildings, and NFL stadiums. Drone pilots have the reflexes of seasoned gamers and the technical know-how of aerospace engineers. They fly via remote...

The Coming Age of the Military Micro-Drone


CICADA The Close-In Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft, or CICADA, is playfully described as a “paper airplane with a circuit board” in a recent AFP article. The micro-drone is intended to be deployed in, what the U.S. military has taken to calling, “swarms.” The CICADA swarm is dropped from an airplane to glide down to the Earth’s surface, directed by an on-board GPS which can guide the...

Howdy. I first started blogging on in 2009, with a dedicated focus on men's lifestyle and stories of inebriation. Shortly after, I was listed as a top Canadian blogger, and over the next decade, I've collaborated with hundreds of notable brands.

Then I grew up. As of late, I've graduated to writing about life experiences, well-researched opinions, and hopefully a few things you might find useful.

This is my memory vault.
