Up and coming entrepreneurialism--Quadrocopters

(There really is such a word as entrepreneurialism! )
And a quadrocopter is a small drone that anyone can buy---- so far--ones that entrepreneurs are getting geared up for.

We now get to watch laws being built, money being made, people being sued as it happens.

Drones now doing business in the skies above you | The Register-Guard | Eugene, Oregon

Tragically there may even be some fatalities. But, that aside, here is one drone gone amok!

No picture. Unless it was further on in the video. It seemed like other news they were showing.

I wondered if it was the same device as this, which I've been told is just some guy playing around and isn't real.



ETA: I think he says "poop" in this. NSFW.

Pacanis--- I don't know why the pic didn't come up for you, it does for me (just checked again). The vagaries of different browsers, different parameters set? I don't know. Sorry but you really didn't miss much, it was over so fast! (It was at the very beginning of the video)

No one got hurt, just ouched and the couple was able to even laugh about it------ later!

No, it isn't the same as the one you showed.

I'll try clicking on it again. All I saw was the bird's eye view of the camera running into the people.

Nope. I still just get the new article, but I can see where the pics are supposed to be.
Oh well.

Oh, that's all there was! As I said you hadn't missed much except for that little quadrocopter writhing on the ground. LOL

Amazon is experimenting with them to do deliveries. The article I read said they are just waiting for FAA approval.

Jeff Bezos is a pretty smart cookie so I hope he irons all the wrinkles out so those deliveries don't wind up like the 'delivery' for that poor wedding couple!
