However, with budget considerations and the current low-expectations from our modern design geniuses all we'll probably see is this ...

This is starting to be interesting :unsure:, believe it or not I was thinking exactly at that good ol' toy when I saw Real Steel first time.

 

But you have it wrong. :(

 

That was old design, it was simple, it was sturdy, mechanical and it worked. :yes:

 

If you would make a new one would have:

  • touch screen and gestures interface
  • Wi-Fi or anyway wireless connection
  • Android or Java (or both)
  • need to be connected to the Internet
  • no user replaceable batteries (you would need to take it to service to replace them)

Right you are, I seriously insulted that classic toy. My bad.

Let me cast my vote for a "Political Deathmatch" ( just like "Celebrity Deathmatch" which was a hysterical and clever spoof of the Roman Gladiator concept ). We can take our elected and unelected bureaucrats and self-appointed tyrants and shove them into the ring. Two enter, one leaves. Come to think of it, that would still be one too many.

A small confirmation :yes:.

 

Compare the "How to play" here:

with this original Commercial:

 

You might notice how very little relevance is given to the need for syncing nor any warning is present about possible interferences. :whistle:

Will “Disposable Folded Cellulose-Substrate Micro-Unmanned Aerial Vehicles” be the new frontier? :unsure:

They are (will be) "inherently stealth" :yes: when it comes to noise detection....

While we are at history, the drone pioneers had it really rough:

Not to get into politics, but does that even work anymore? There was a news story some time ago (maybe a month) that drone activity will no longer be reported to the media.

Cannot say. :unsure:

 

To be fair, if you do something that is classified and/or secret, it is a good rule of the thumb that you don't report it to the media, but IF you decide to pass these info to the media (and you are the US Gov) it makes little sense that the geniuses at Apple label an app that simply analyzes/collects these public data as "falling into a category of "concepts" that the company decides not to advance".

 

BTW, and as a matter of fact, I believe that 2/3 to 3/4 of the whatever data is given to the media by the Governement (when military matters or security are involved) is either false, deceiving or both, a strange mix of PR's and counterintelligence, and the results of "external investigations" are often partial when not plainly "wrong", which makes the app one of the most senseless one around, still - as long as it does nothing illegal - Apple has no valid reason to allow or disallow it in the store.

P.S.: Anyone knows what can be worse than a drone? :unsure:

Hmmm. :unsure: This would lead us to Alien Drones :w00t: :ph34r:

and from those to mothership clouds the link is only too short:

For NO apparent reason, BIG DRONES :w00t:

 

http://www.theverge....he-size-of-747s

 

(though possibly an engineer that uses indifferently Toyota Prius's and 747's as units of measure is not IMHO particularly reliable):

Maguire also further said that the drones should be thought of as planes because they will be "roughly the size of a commercial aircraft, like a 747." He later compared one drone design in Facebook's lab to the length of "six or seven [Toyota] Priuses" but said it only weighs as much as four of the car's tires.

Sharks may try it out, but they prefer their delicacy:

That's what I was also thinking ... since sharks are known to eat almost anything. I believe license plates and you name it has been found in a shark's s stomach ... maybe everything except a riding lawnmower.

 

That's interesting about Google’s Undersea Cables ... maybe the sharks are on our side!

 

Perhaps the eletrical impulses going through the cables are picked up by the shark since they and other sea animals can read electrical impulses of sea creatures in "fear" mode and such. Don't know, just a theory, not very scientific.

I'm not sure that sharks are actually "eating" everything. Maybe they are just using stuff as chew toys.

And once you "detect" a drone, what is next step?
