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!"

The Future of Pizza Delivery, By Drone? — VIDEO

Dominos

Of course, if you don't tip well, it may shoot you down.

NBC News reports:

The delivery was masterminded by a T + Biscuits, an English creative agency that was hired by Domino's to test prototypes. "We're looking at making flying pizzas a possibility," Tom Hatton, Master Brewer and founder of T + Biscuits, told NBC News.

A pizza delivering drone smells deliciously similar to the fabled TacoCopter — a taco delivery app which, to the Internet's disappointment, ended up being just a concept design — but Hatton insists the "DomiCopter" is the real deal. "We're serious about it," he said.

The U.S. Navy is cheering a milestone in drone warfare, Reuters reports:

The bat-winged X-47B stealth drone roared off the USS George H.W. Bush near the coast of Virginia and flew a series of pre-programmed maneuvers around the ship before veering away toward a Naval air station in Maryland where it was scheduled to land.

"This is really a red-letter day. May 14 we all saw history happen" said Rear Admiral Ted Branch, the Atlantic naval air commander. "It's a marker ... between naval aviation as we've known it and the future of naval aviation with the launch of the X-47B."

Gizmodo adds:

"In a few decades, when autonomous drone planes battle each other in the skies, fire missiles at drone troops and battleships, humanity will look back at this day as the true beginning of total drone warfare...Sooner than we think, the Pentagon will be able to easily and conveniently deploy autonomous fighters, and bombers anywhere in the globe thanks to their aircraft carriers. And then, one day, Skynet will gain self-awareness. Fun times ahead!

The coming drone invasion:

“The sky’s going to be dark with these things,” said Chris Anderson, the former editor of Wired, who started the hobbyist Web site DIY Drones and now runs a company, 3D Robotics, that sells unmanned aerial vehicles and equipment. He says it is selling about as many drones every calendar quarter — about 7,500 — as the United States military flies in total.
