Seeing this, in part, inspired me to re-watch the three LOTR movies.
I have a lot of respect for companies that can be creative like this. Why not? It'll certainly make people more likely to watch the video. All of the necessary information is there. The only downside is that it seems a lot longer than a standard safety video. On the other hand, I wouldn't complain.
GREAT video, however I can't help wondering about the reactions of anyone who has not read / seen LOTR (there must be a couple around...) Would love to be sitting near one when it comes on.....
Then again, if it leads said persons to read the book or see the movie.....job done!
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.
