    To celebrate Star Trek's 50th anniversary, this is the USS Enterprise flying drone being released by toy manufacturer Spin Master later this year. It will retail for around $120 and even has lights and makes 10 authentic sound effects. I'm going to beg for one for my birthday... / Continue →

    These are two videos of the recently invented sport of droneboarding, which involves being pulled by a giant quadrocopter while on a snowboard. Personally, I have no interest in this sport until the drones are powerful enough to lift me off the ground. I want to FLY. Just li... / Continue →

    In today's real visions of the future segment, here's a video of a quadrocopter with a flamethrower attached, roasting a turkey and presumably starting a forest fire (previously: the quadrocopter with a gun attached the same guy made). Although it's not so much roasting the tu... / Continue →

    The Battelle DroneDefender is a rifle designed to take over radio control of drones so you can bring them to the ground and stomp them. I just blasted myself in the nuts with one and now the doctor says I can't have kids for another 600 years which is actually fine with me bec... / Continue →

    This is a video of two dogs ready to witness a mini-quadrocopter's maiden voyage. Except, SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: that dog on the right isn't having it and grabs the thing off the table. You ever seen a dog poop electronics before? I have. My dog ate a TV remote once. Eve... / Continue →

    This is a video of young Bruno getting a loose front tooth pulled out by a quadrocopter with Europe's 'The Final Countdown' as the musical soundtrack. I remember when I was a kid my dad would just pull my teeth out with pliers. Usually before they were really ready to come ou... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a dog robot that has a tethered quadrocopter drone it can launch from its back. Like closing your eyes and randomly booty-calling any contact in your phone, this will probably end very badly (sorry Shane, hope we can still be friends). The combination... / Continue →

    This is the $110 Millennium Falcon quadrocopter made and sold by Air Hogs. It has lights and sound effects and a one hour charge gets 8 - 12 minutes of flight time at a distance up to 250-feet. That is pretty far away. If I ever flew it further than 40 feet away I would just... / Continue →

    This is a video of a disgruntled fisherman casting at and successfully hooking Youtuber Tice Ledbetter's drone on a San Diego pier. Admittedly, that cast was pretty amazing. Maybe if he could cast like that all the time he'd have more fish in his bucket. I remember one time ... / Continue →

    This is some quadrocopter footage of a tornado in Hutchinson, Kansas. It's crazy how the sun is still shining so bright on one side, and the other side looks like beginning of the apocalypse. Also, when I heard 'drone footage of a tornado', I thought it would actually be a li... / Continue →

    This is a video of the quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach to resemble Snoopy and his flying doghouse. He did a great job. Snoopy's head even turns from side to side for ADDED REALISM. Apparently the quadrocopter was built to promote both San Diego Comic-Con and the upcom... / Continue →

    This is a video of a portly drunk man swatting a $1,350 DJI Phantom 3 quadrocopter out of the sky and breaking its 4K camera and three of its props. Apparently the man, who is a neighbor of the folks filming, told them if he flew it over his house he was going to be pissed off... / Continue →

    This is the Incom T-70 X-Wing quadrocopter built by Star Wars fan and French quadrocopter hobbyist Olivier C (previously: a TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon). Does everybody already own a quadrocopter by now? I still don't have one. Do you have one? Can I play with you... / Continue →
