What I find most interesting about these videos is what they DON'T show. The last couple of seconds of the Domino's video implies that you just reach out and grab your lunch from the midst if eight furiously-spinning razor-sharp propellers! Can you imagine how this might turn out? There's another way to look at this too- If you want a free Octocopter, just order pizza and have it sent to the vacant house down the street. Then as it comes down to deliver the payload, sneak up on it from behind and throw a blanket over it.

Here's a quadcopter bike http://www.canadianmanufacturing.com/design-engineering/news/flying-bike-takes-off-in-prague-video-design-eng-106842?tmp=0&utm_source=DNG&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=DNG-EN06142013&e=0z060wWrlxu0q82vM20

I hear a copter flying by and I smell pepperoni. Time for Operation Dark Raven. :)

Our air control system has enough trouble managing the (relatively few) big airplanes on defined routes. Ubiquitous copters on random paths will be a nightmare. As these things become common and hobbyists adapt their own, we have the potential for small misguided devices to bring down hot air balloons and landing aircraft.

With the current rules limiting operation to line of sight, under 400 feet and non-commercial in nature this idea will never fly (pardon the pun).

I really am getting to the stage where I'd like to build a hexa-copter or octa-copter ... I want to mount a good digital camera to it and take interesting pictures ... any suggestions?

I just got a renewal notice from my insurance company with an added exclusion for riding or operating a hovercraft. I wonder if your hover scooter would be excluded from the policy.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
