Drone Racing!

It’s boring being an adult, look at how cool these toys are!! Big boys and our drone racing, drone flying, drone everything toys!! These crazy people are racing drones now!

Skilled pilots fly quad-copter drones through real life courses at speeds up to 120mph. The drones are custom built for speed, agility, and performance & these crazy son’s of naughty words are real life pilots! Steering from the point of view of the drone by wearing First Person View (FPV) goggles that display a live image transmitted by an onboard camera.

Flying a drone competitively at high speed in FPV is an intense, immersive experience.

I don’t know about you but I want a go NOW!

There’s another type of party that you can have down ‘there’!! – The Vaginal Soundsystem Babypod Lets Pregnant Women Rock Out With Their Foetuses!!

Apparently audio stimulation may help in foetuses develop in the womb & now theres a solution, that doesn’t involve stretching your expensive Beats around an expectant mother’s stomach.

Instead use the Babypod, its basically a tiny speaker with an aux jack at one end for your iPhone and a small bead speaker which goes, well you can guess where.

Babypod claims the clearer audio “stimulates the vocalisation of babies before birth through music and encourages their neural development.”

There’s no word on if there’s a male equivalent.

Boys. We are one step closer to Terminator Eyes!

Now its not entirely 100% a bionic eye but Ray FIynn 80, has dry age related Macular degeneration, a disease that affects mainly the elderly & it happens when cells in part of the retina become damaged which causes the loss of his central vision. He relies entirely on his peripheral vision.

Surgens have attached a retinal implant around the back of Ray’s right eye, a world first.

He wears special glasses, which have a built in video camera which is then wirelessly transmitted to the implant that is on his eye, then the electrodes stimulate the remaining cells in the eye sending messages to the brain to interpret.

He now can see but not 100% like you or I, he can see shapes and distinct patterns like a door frame or a set of stairs. Within time Ray should be able to learn how to interpret the images that are being sent to him via the implant more effectively.
