It was only a matter of time before someone worked out how to turn a multicopter such as a quadrotor radio controlled helicopter into a game and it looks like it’d be incredible fun.
From what I can see, they’ve got small video cameras attached to the top of the quadcopters to allow the pilots to see where they are going. That video footage is being streamed in real time back to the quadcopter’s pilot using wireless networking via a wifi transmitter that they’ve setup in the forest. I love the bright coloured lights that at the rear of the quadcopter’s so they can be easily seen by the other pilots.
I’m pretty sure they are all Star Wars fans, it harks back to the forest speeder bike scene!
I took an early mark from work and attended a Father’s Day event at Evie’s C&K kindergarten earlier in the year, which was a lot of fun. There were a whole heap of Dad’s there which was great to see, playing with their kids, doing activities and eating sausages on bread with sauce! One of the Fathers’ Day gifts that Evie gave me was a photo of her dressed up as a Daddy, gorgeous and completely hilarious at the same time – I was pretty chuffed with it as a present!
Danny Macaskill is at it again with his famous mountain biking skills. This installment sees Danny return to his home of The Isle of Skye in Scotland, attempting to climb his mountain bike over the arid, rocky and treacherous terrain of Cuillin Ridgeline. The videography through the film is breathtaking and it really show cases what a spectacular part of the world Scotland is. If the below peaks your interest and you’d like to see some more, I’ve published a few other Danny Macaskill videos in the past as well – also well worth your time to watch!
YouTube really is an amazing service, as you view a video it begins to surface other videos that you might like to watch. Today I stumbled onto the below video of Denis Teullet practicing and having fun on his BMX at various competition and leisure tracks. The balance he displays while pumping through the whoops going full speed or even slowly is impressive, especially when he continues his rear wheel balancing act through the berm and then into and through the next set of whoops.
This is without question the most incredible barefoot water skiing that I’ve ever seen, period. If the speed that they are going behind the boats isn’t enough or the insane tricks, wait until you see someone barefoot behind a seaplane!
