PBS Rise of the Drones
Got an email while at work about one of the program's the company I work for (BAE Systems) was featured on this PBS special. Very interesting and cool special on UAV's, worth a watch.

I watched part of it the other night on TV. Very interesting stuff going on in this field.

I like to think PBS stands for "prefer butt sex"

this isnt new. I saw this a week back, what got my attention was why they had recorded video of the person waving his hands in the middle of the street. Does it mean that they immediately detected that behaviour and zoomed in to check it out. Which got me thinking, the device automatically found that, what if the person is a sick individual starts watching weird ****.( ie a person jacking it)

I caught most of it. Nova is a great program.

Drones and compact sensors are going to provide a serious privacy challenge in the near future.

People worry about the govt, and those concerns are legit. But when every 13 y/o punk and supercreep college kid and PI wannabe can use their smartphone to fly a drone that looks in 17th floor windows using IR cameras and feed the images straight to the interwebz, that's a privacy issue on a scale we haven't faced before.

From-the-sky views of street races. When a police car chase happens, a dozen people fly their drones along with the pursuit, dropping down to windshield level to get face-to-face with the suspect. Hovering outside your bedroom window, using a gap in the curtains to film your wife fiddling her bean or your kids playing dress-up. Weeeeeee...

Gonna be interesting, that's for sure.
