He was attacked by sharks until he was saved by a drone pilot | Digital Trends Spanish

Drones are becoming more and more useful, and they are no longer devices used only by aviation enthusiasts who want to record beautiful shots. Now they help save lives. Literally. Matt Woods wanted to record the ocean off the coast of Australia, so he launched his Mavic 2 Zoom into the air. However, while recording the waves and the beauty of the waters, he managed to capture an unusual scene: a person was attacked by a mako shark. This species can grow to between 3.5 and 4 meters, and they are recognized by the shape of their snout and their large, narrow mouth. Local authorities have already reported several attacks by these specimens on bathers and boats, which is why it is considered dangerous. For this reason, when Woods realized that the person was being attacked, he immediatel...

United Arab Emirates creates clouds to curb drought | Digital Trends Spanish

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) faces a serious drought problem, for which they have had to resort to unusual, almost desperate measures. The idea is to get the necessary rainfall for agriculture and other essential activities. For this, the nation had to resort to drones to generate rain artificially. The drones were developed by the local government and researchers from England. According The Washington PostAs they fly over, they can collect meteorological data and give the clouds a little boost in the form of an electrical discharge. The goal is for the electrical impulse to help group the water droplets and other particles together to create new and larger clouds that have a chance to generate the necessary precipitation. "What we're trying to do is make the droplets inside the ...

Sheep river in a fascinating time-lapse made with a drone | Digital Trends Spanish

Videographer Lior Patel recorded a large group of sheep with his drone for seven months. The result: mesmerizing aerial video in fast motion (time-lapse) with more than 1,000 sheep grazing and traveling long distances. It all started when Patel approached Peace Valley in Yokneam, a city in northern Israel, and told a local shepherd about the idea of ​​filming sheep with a drone. From then on, Patel approached the site once every two weeks. At first, Patel was interested in sheep movement and how the herd spread and contracted, but it was unpredictable. So when Patel was ready to start recording, the pastor would point him in the direction that probably they would take the sheep. Then, Patel sent his drone into the air, which he monitored with an app on his iPad, until the sheep pass...

Rescue drone is guided by the screams of trapped people | Digital Trends Spanish

Drones add more and more applications and functionalities, some of them are quite striking. Now, for example, they are also of great help in rescue efforts. A team of researchers from the Fraunhofer FKIE institute in Germany has created a drone that is capable of locating trapped people by following their screams. It may seem like a macabre idea, but it is quite serious. The device has been designed to find survivors when a natural disaster strikes. "Drones can cover a larger area in a shorter period of time than rescue workers or trained dogs," says Macarena Varela, one of the main engineers on the project. Macarena Varela / Fraunhofer FKIE“If there is a collapsed building, it can alert and help rescuers. It can go to places that they cannot reach ”. The researchers first recorded t...

DJI launched the Mavic Mini 2: record in 4K and it’s faster | Digital Trends Spanish

It weighs less than 250 grams and can be moved up to 10 kilometers away from the control. This is the Mavic Mini 2, the second generation of the smallest drone of the specialized brand DJI. It was presented this Wednesday by the company with improved cameras and with several optimized functions compared to its predecessor. According ZDNetTo achieve the longest range, DJI added the Mini 2 to its OcuSync wireless control network, which communicates over 2.4 to 2.48 gigahertz links.

Evolution: drone now has both changing wings and tail | Digital Trends Spanish

It is not the first time that the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL) has created a drone based on birds. Researchers at the institution have continued to advance until they arrive at a design that is characterized by having more moving parts, in order to make it fly more agile. In addition to the wings changing shape -as the first model of 2016 did-, the new version, which could be considered more “feathered”, also modifies its rear part, with a tail morphing. The inspiration for the device was the northern goshawk, whose color pattern resembles a hawk. This species can traverse forests and make adjustments in flight to chase its prey. "The goshawks move their wings and tails in tandem to carry out the desired movement, such as rapid changes of direction when hu...

Amazon receives authorization for delivery with drones | Digital Trends Spanish

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States recognized Amazon Prime Air as an "aeronautical company", with which the retail giant could now make its deliveries with drones. After receiving permission, it is presumed that the company would soon implement a test program using the devices whose technical characteristics were known by the authority in 2019. “Amazon and its competitors have yet to overcome some regulatory and technical hurdles before packages of pet food or toothpaste can routinely arrive at people's homes.
