... but I think I'd better wire up my bow tie if I'm going to get any UHF."

[Obscure references to 20th Century analog TV technology and 19th Century men's fashion.]

"Dang, I still can't get hold of Orson...how did Mork do it?"

(no so obscure reference to "Mork and Mindy" which aired 1978-82.)

Thanks, betajet! Maybe that is the answer to the 3DTV problem. Just wear the TV.

@Susan: I've seen this photo before....do you know anything about it?

"I know nothing, Colonel Hogan," as Sergeant Schultz would say :-)

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & 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? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
