Also in the 'mixed message' category: I had a housemate in college -- a real trickster -- who liked to answer 'wrong-number' phone calls as if he were the intended recipient. I could only hear one side of the conversation, of course, so I usually didn't know what he was up to until it was too late. Here's one particularly cringe-inducing call that I remember overhearing:
"Sorry, he's in the shower."
"No, she's in the shower too, heheheh."
"Uhh, well, you'll have to ask him yourself."
"Okay, I'll tell him you're on your way."
"Okay, I *won't* tell him.... Okay, bye."
I'm guessing some poor unsuspecting fellow had a rather unpleasant day.
I assume you will come back to us with reports on some real working devices running some real working apps. This will be exiting :)
My head has been thinking what this rascal could do for my line of interests.
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.
