    Still alive!

    I have an OCZ Vertex 3 (120gb) that was my primary drive until last year (Upgraded motherboard had an nvme so i also upgraded the drive to a 970evo). The PC it's on just died and i'm considering what to do with it. This SSD was bought back in 2011, at the time i was worried about it wearing...

    Graphic editing help. What do you call this?

    I'm trying to learn video editing but I don't know enough terms to put in the search box. The thing I'm trying to learn is how to track things on video. I made a green card and tracked the corners, then used it as a mask for some transparency and skewing. Just basic stuff, you can even see...

    YouTube Paid Music Industry $1 Billion From Advertising Alone

    Would this be related to the BGMs used in videos? This isn't mine, but one of my own videos used a BGM that got flagged. Youtube didn't take it down but ads got force enabled and the revenue from that apparently goes to the music label.

    There Are Now More Drones Registered Than Piloted Aircraft

    Yeah, registering a plane is not the same a applying for pilots license to actually fly the thing. This is how it is over here. (FYI, we don't actually have a fancy UAV industry, by UAV, they're specifically referring to hobby drones, not...

    Police Training Eagles To Take Down Drones

    Yes. Have you seen an Eagle fly like this? And i don't think an eagle can take too many hits of this. It's a brushed quad running on a 2S battery, its motors are so weak it had to use gears to...

    Snowboarding Using A Drone

    Yes there are gas powered multirotors. But they work a bit differently, electric motors can change RPM instantaneously so they can change lift by simply making itself spin faster or slower, internal combustion engines are too slow to react to throttle commands. So instead of four gas motors...

    Snowboarding Using A Drone

    Main reason i moved to quads is the ease of use. Do you realize how much work goes into the maintenance of an RC helicopter? The hours you spend just hovering hunting down the vibrations so it flies smooth on the field? Checking the belts, gears, blades, slop in the linkages, periodically...

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens VFX Breakdown

    One of the biggest shocks in the movie is how much abuse the millennium falcon was able to take. Are all of Star Wars ships built like that?! I thought the cockpit was the weakest part of the chip, but it got dragged through the ground and didn't even crack the glass.

    Manned Multi-Rotor Super Drone Flying Machine

    Any reason it couldn't go higher? Even the little quads we use go up atleast a kilometer (i.e. cloud surfing). Once you're no longer supported by ground effect, you can just keep going as long as there's air... and batteries... Or he wants them there so he doesn't end up in china if it does...

    Eagle 1 - Drone 0

    Wait 'til you see one downed by the smaller predators. When i started flying helicopters, i thought i had something in my eye coz there were always dots behind my 450. Turns out it was being chased by insects. Persistent little buggers. Overall, these events aren't all that unusual...

    Using iPhones As Brake Pads

    The iPhones may have been destroyed, but they're still there. I don't really know how ABS works, but i assume the makeshift brake pads are messing with it and keeping the brakes from fully deploying (full deploy = wheels lock if using any normal brake pad). Emergency brakes bypasses the ABS...

    Researchers Call For A Ban On Autonomous Weapons

    Does this mean they'll ban Tomahawk Missiles? They have onboard AI that finds a path to the target zone using cameras that scan the terrain, and then when it decides that it's found the target, divebombs into it and detonates itself.
