evtolinsights.com published a story this week about drone delivery company, Zipline (wait for the overused phrase) “game-changing” new technologies (note the plural). Anyone who has followed the ultimate “drones for good” company, knows how ahead it is from its rivals both in technology and success. And now, Zipline has taken not one, but two additional steps forward.
In fact, the story above is two stories in one, where the major “game-changer” has been overshadowed. For we enter the realms of Star Wars, Blade Runner and The Fifth Element with the introduction of Zipline’s droid, where the increasing problem of delivery drone noise is erased with one stealth move. To really gain the full impact of this technological breakthrough, please view the 21.5’ minute-long video below under the heading, “Amazing Invention — This Drone will Change Everything”.
Mark Rober and his enthusiasm for Zipline is contagious.
While 42 year-old Rober is your typical techno geek who speaks in a high-pitched gatling gun fashion, his background is impressive. Renowned for his videos on popular science and do-it-yourself gadgets, before becoming a YouTube star, Rober was an engineer with NASA for nine years, where he spent seven years working on the Curiosity Rover at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He later worked for four years at Apple as a product designer in their Special Projects Group, where he authored patents involving virtual reality in self-driving cars.
In a nutshell, not only does Rober know what he is talking about, but has the portfolio to prove it. Amazingly, this video (apologies for the ads) has attracted over 14 million views in just four days. The point being… if Rober is behaving like a waggy dog on steroids, you take him seriously.
The video explains everything. Please Enjoy. “Droids For good!”
