Meet Marie Van Brittan Brown Inventor and Co-creator of CCTV - http://media.tumblr.com/18ad2d69015ad1b0f1f1ca6de920c973/tumblr_inline_mqtwen0BoR1qz4rgp.jpg - This is Marie Van Bitten Brown, she invented CCTV and together with her husband Albert produced a series of home securities systems. Their device was a system of motorised cameras with images shown on a remote monitor (CCTV); a remote control operated door and an audio video alarm system to see who’s at the door before opening. Marie was tired of the slow response times of police in her neighbourhood and wanted to find a way for people to keep safe. Together they completely revolutionised home security. http://media.tumblr.com/18ad2d69015ad1b0f1f1ca6de920c973/tumblr_inline_mqtwen0BoR1qz4rgp.jpg

Originally shared by Roswell Flight Test Crew At long last, we round out our trilogy of public safety demonstration videos built around two days of training exercises with the Eugene Fire Department, arranged by our friends at Rising Tide Innovations. We saved the best (or at least the hottest) for last: a burning building. Here it is! Now, technically, the building itself isn't burning, because it's a training facility made of reinforced concrete covered in heat-resistant tiles like the belly of the space shuttle – but you could have fooled us, based on the amount of smoke pouring out and the number of firefighters moving inside to extinguish the blaze. There was a lot happening in this scenario, and it was over very quickly. We only had time to put RQCX-3 “Raven” up twice before it was all over. However, during those precious few minutes, we were able to show what the drone could do. First, with her FLIR thermal imaging camera, Raven was able to see through the smoke – which

Originally shared by Roswell Flight Test Crew Courtesy of our friends at MediaFX Video Production and their hard-working intern Steven, we bring you our presentation last month on the main stage at the 2014 AMA Expo. We actually gave the same talk twice – once on Friday and once on Saturday. This video is from our Friday presentation. While we were a little better prepared on Saturday (having already done it once), I felt that this presentation was more genuine in some sense and, furthermore, it concluded with a lot of really great questions from the audience. This event also provided us with our first opportunity to speak on video about two projects we've been working on: the Drone Social Innovation Award and the 2014 Drone Prize. Both are contests that seek to have folks demonstrate beneficial uses of home-made drones. We'll be serving as judges for both competitions, and we're looking forward to seeing what you can do. And, finally, we just wanted to offer our thanks to

We need to have an open conversation, we need transparency in the intended use of Google Glass in educational spaces -  http://langwitches.org/blog/2014/02/08/google-glass-reflection-and-reactions/ http://langwitches.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/google-glass-at-graded.jpg

"...I had thought about leaving #glass at home because there will be obviously lots of young girls...." Originally shared by Chris Radtke (kavalier) So I'm taking my 7 year old daughter to the Father Daughter Dance at school on Saturday.  I had thought about leaving Glass at home because there will be obviously lots of young girls and their fathers there, and I could see some of them having a problem with "the camera" as it has been a controversy as of late.    But upon further thought, I have decided that events such as this one are the whole purpose behind the camera that's built in to Glass, and one of the main reasons I purchased it myself.  If I do not wear it, and don't take advantage of the opportunities to document these special events in the lives of my daughter and myself, I will regret it probably for the rest of my life.  It's not like I'm going to be taking pictures of other people's kids, come on, I'm capturing special momen

Personally, while being intensely uncomfortable associating with a group called 'drones for schools', I'm most interested in the aerial photography use of this generation of remote control helicopters. I think this has immediate application, especially in schools. Stephan Ridgway I know you're geared up, so I'd like to see a video that has all the jerky shakes typical of the images we're seeing, but stablised using Youtube's enhancement features. I've been very impressed with Youtube's advances in web-based editing, particularly their image stabliser.
