Transformer Aircraft Folds Its Wings to Become a Multirotor Drone

Posted by in category: drones

We’ve seen various vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle designs in the past. From contraptions that feature no wings to air taxis with massive propellers, there are many options to choose from when it comes to VTOLs. But this new aircraft has something unique that allows it to fold its wings and turn into a multirotor drone.

Drones could help save soldiers’ lives by delivering blood on demand

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, drones, military, robotics/AI

Getting blood to a wounded soldier could be the difference between life and death. A drone swarm is one way to make that happen in battle.


Blood is usually a finite quality on a battlefield. Battles can cause a number of injuries, from the minor to the critical. If a soldier can get the wound closed in time, they can staunch the loss, but keeping the patient alive may require an influx of new blood. As medics work to aid their comrades, they could receive help from an unusual source: delivery drones, bringing literal fresh blood to the battlefield.

A drone swarm capable of delivering blood was part of Autonomous Advance Force 4.0, an exercise by the United Kingdom’s armed forces in which Royal Marines Commandos trained with modern technology for future war. The July exercise took place in Cumbria and Dorset, with a release announced July 17.

Dubai makes its own RAIN to tackle 122F heat: Drones blast clouds with electrical charge to produce

Posted by in categories: business, drones, energy

Dubai uses drones to electrically charge clouds, causing tortential rains in one of the driest nations on Earth. Until now, such experiments had been done succeessfully from the ground only.

Autonomous flight algorithm beats ‘world-class’ human drone racing pilots [video]

Posted by in categories: drones, information science, robotics/AI

There are many reasons for drones to be quick. The professional drone racing circuit aside, speed bodes well when you are searching for survivors on a disaster site, or delivering cargo, or even inspecting critical infrastructure. But how do you get something done in the shortest possible time with limited battery life when you have to navigate through obstacles, changing speeds, and altitude? You use an algorithm.

Dubai is making its own fake rain to beat 122F heat

Posted by in categories: drones, geoengineering

Its cloud seeding operations are part of an ongoing mission to generate precipitation in the Middle East country, which has an average rainfall of just four inches.


The enhanced rain is created using drone technology that unleashes electrical charges into clouds in order for them to clump together and form precipitation.

The National reported the heavy rainfall caused waterfalls to appear in the city of Ail Ain and made driving conditions hazardous.

The Greek Laser Weapon That Hits Drones Every 2–3 Seconds

Posted by in categories: business, drones, military, robotics/AI

The inventor of the first robot in Greece, Konstantinos Soukos, has pushed Greece into a new era by creating laser weapons that target drones.

When the inventor and businessman Konstantinos Soukos built the first robot in Greece in 1985, he did not imagine that 36 years later he would supply many military forces across the world.
