Get Ready for the Dazzling Display of the World's First 'Drone Ballet' - VIDEO

Drone

Fjuze, a Dutch event organizing group, has partnered with the Royal Dutch Air Force for what can only be described as as a psychedelic, TRON-esque take on Cirque du Soleil performed entirely by drones. The event, called AIR, is being billed as a drone ballet featuring lights, lasers, and synchronized “illusions.”

“In this high energy and explosive show, drones will take center stage to bring a collaboration and fusion of music, video, projections and special effects.” the show’s website promises. “AIR allows you to experience a variety of ballet and battles, races and lasers, circus, illusions and most of all magic from hundreds of drones.”

Drones

Last year Amazon made the announcement that they would be exploring the idea of delivery-by-drone for people who bought from their online store. Proposed FAA regulations stand to increase costs and erode the value of the delivery method for the immediate future, but this Pandora's Box has been cracked open and a new video from The Verge looks at the greater concept of drones in our skies beyond getting your Rufskin clothing on-demand.

Drone Offers Bird's-Eye View Of Umbrella Revolution In Hong Kong: VIDEO

Hk

Yesterday, we brought you news of the burgeoning Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, so named because of the umbrellas used by pro-democracy protesters to ward off the tear gas being used by riot police. Even as government officials shut down Instagram throughout the country--which was being used to disseminate images of anti-government insubordination--protesters continued to flood the streets in Hong Kong, refusing to back down.

Global Post's Timothy McGrath sums up the unrest:

Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Hong Kong in an outpouring of frustration over politics and representation. Under Hong Kong's present electoral system, citizens don't elect their own leaders. Instead, they're appointed by a Beijing-friendly electoral committee. That will change — sort of, but not really — in 2017, when Hong Kong citizens will get to choose from among two or three candidates pre-selected by a Beijing nominating committee.

Protesters call the new electoral system "fake democracy."

According to Oliver, drone strikes will be as much a characteristic of the Obama presidency as Obamacare or receiving racist email forwards from distant relatives.

Whale Watching by Drone Offers Stunning, Rare View of Mother Humpback and Calf: VIDEO

Whales

Justin Edwards, a whale enthusiast with a RC drone, captured some beautiful footage of humpback whales on February 14 off the coast of Maui near Kihei, including a mother playing with her calf.

Writes Edwards: "I love filming from my drone and I am always looking for things to film so whales seemed like a great subject.  I also wanted to show my two young boys what a whale was like because they would normally only see them blowing air from a long way away - Now they know how big and majestic these creatures are!"
