Eyes front: DJI just released a new, lower latency FPV system for advanced drone pilots

DJI has launched a first-person view (FPV) headset for pilots that has a mere 28 milliseconds of latency and can stream at 720p at 120 fps.

Your next drone accessory could well be a… flamethrower?

It’s perhaps a little disturbing how often Stuff has written about the humble flamethrower. Elon Musk’s Boring Flamethrower is an obvious one, while setting an HTC One M9 aflame is a more creative use of the flame-spewing… appliance? Appliance is probably the wrong word. Pity the video’s dead. We’ve even seen a drone toting a flamethrower before. And, now, you can own...[Read More]

Cloudy with a chance of McDonald’s – Your Uber Eats could arrive by drone in just eight minutes

In the not too distant future, you will be able to order Uber Eats that will be delivered to you by drone, as the ride-sharing company announced a pilot with McDonald's in San Diego. Using a current commercial drone Uber has been testing deliveries with the hamburger maker in the California city. Ultimately it plans to create a custom drone for delivering food in a custom box.

Next up from DJI is a tank. For kids. Meet the RoboMaster S1

Man, where were all the cool things for kids when we were growing up? We had some interesting stuff but anything called the RoboMaster S1 would have been coloured in bright neon, made of semi-indestructible plastics, and would probably have been the result of a cartoon series tie-in. DJI, though, has other ideas. 

Autobots, roll out: Amazon now has a transforming delivery drone

Move over Optimus Prime, here come... Amazon Prime? Yeah, that's not a typo, though Amazon's newest little transformer doesn't do anything quite as spectacular as morphing from a truck into a robot and kicking Megatron in the er... bolts.

Looking for a fresh drone experience? We MetaFly you might like to meet

The folks at Stuff love a good drone. The flying-around one, not the type that puts you to sleep when combined with a PowerPoint presentation. But as they’ve been getting better (oh man, have they been getting better) they’ve also all become the same. It’s hard to move without tripping over improved flight times, enhanced smarts, and slick designs. It’s time for something d...[Read More]

Light Start – Valkyrie drone, supersonic photos, Aniara, and The Division 2’s bulky download

This week on Light Start, we go up in the air (twice -- once for drones, the other for photos), check out some Swedish sci-fi, and download The Division 2.

DJI unveils Mavic 2 drones and yes, now you can zoom

Drone- and gimbal-maker DJI has taken the wraps off its newest devices, a pair of updates to the Mavic Pro range — called the Mavic 2 series — that include new object-avoidance sensors to help pilots avoid crashing into things, and a choice of two cameras: a Hasselblad camera with a large, 1in CMOS sensor, and a more conventional 1/2.3in sensor camera that includes a zoom lens, which w...[Read More]

A leaked ad forces DJI to confirm Mavic 2 drone specs

Have you ever done something you regret immediately but know that you can’t undo? That’s what the print industry risks every day, and an error like printing an ad way out of schedule can lead to a Mavic mishap… just ask drone- and gimbal-maker DJI. We knew that DJI had new versions of the Mavic Pro on the way, but not quite what they would look like. Thanks to a mistakenly published advertis...[Read More]

Light Start – Pizza drone, Samsung talks smack, robot John Cena, and Fortnite for Android dated

And now, a drone made from… pizza? We’ve seen a lot of drones in the last few years but this one takes the cake. Actually, it takes the pizza, since that’s what the aerial vehicle has been constructed from. And before you ask, yes, it can actually fly. If you’ve got about 11 minutes on hand you can watch the whole process that went into making the drone (right down to shopp...[Read More]
