Welcome to the World of Drones. Your weekly news resource on all things drone related.
The 84th Masters Tournament took place over the weekend, and while there were no fans at the Augusta National Golf club, there were drones. CBS Sports provided two drones to get, “sweeping aerial views never before seen during live Masters telecasts,” said the Golf Club’s Chairman Fred T. Ridley. No word on if drones will be used at the next Masters in April, but fans watching from home sure did appreciate the new views.
We’ve got another drone show to talk about! It seems to be becoming a weekly occurrence on the World of Drones, but this one is a Guinness World Record breaker! The show was put on by Shenzhen Damoda Intelligent Technology Control Company LTD and it featured 3,051 drones. The purpose of the show? To beat the previous drone show record of 2066 drones performing at once.
A drone that a dog can fly? Philadelphia-based Exyn Technologies released this video of cute pup Kody tapping a touchscreen to operate a drone. The new ExynAero drone takes total autonomy to a new level by being designed to fly in challenging environments where GPS may not be available, like mines. The drone’s smart control system known as ExynAI allows it to generate a real-time map of its surroundings. This is another example of drones being designed to carry out missions too dangerous for humans.
Sony is entering the drone game. We don’t know much at this point other than the brand will be called AirPeak. According to the press release AirPeak will be in the field of AI Robotics and will, quote “support the creativity of video creators to the fullest extent possible.” The project is set to launch in the Spring of 2021.
