Thanks for the kind comments; I wish I had read this before I decided to switch the video for the final submission.
By the way the accent is Kiwi; thirty plus years of living in New Zealand will do that to you :)
Hopefully, jmSCAG will add audio to the video so that they can more effectively compete with his/her counterparts. I agree with Jim about Layout's video. The narrative is clear and pleasant. The accent and humble learner's attitude lend a didactic quality to the video. The robot clock is delightful and an excellent teaching tool. It would be neat to edit the video further with lines/names of the components. I think Jim's evaluation of whether or not a device is truly utilitarian is a good idea since (as we've witnessed with Apple products) consumer design and highly capable technical requirements are both required for a successful product.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
