GoPro Drone Karma

GoPro’s drone is finally here, and it only costs $800

Rumors about a GoPro drone called Karma have been in the rumormill forever, but it’s finally here. GoPro’s new drone costs $800, and for that you get a fold-up drone barely bigger than a shoebox, and a stabilization system you can take off, attach to an included grip, and use to capture silky-smooth footage on the ground.

GoPro describes it as “so much more than a drone,” and you can see where it’s coming from. Based on the launch footage, Karma is a highly effective gimbal for things like skiing and mountain biking. On its own, mounted to standard GoPro helmet or chest rigs, it makes for seriously pro-level footage. Attached to a cheap, easy-to-control drone, it could be a game-changer.

Could this flying box be GoPro’s long-awaited drone?

Could this flying box be GoPro’s long-awaited drone?

That GoPro has a drone in the works is not a secret. The company has confirmed its plans to release a consumer drone, and even unveiled some footage from it. But we still have no idea what it looks like or when it will be released.

PatentYogi has unveiled a patent application that might shine some light on the drone’s design. They found a patent published last week, filed by a GoPro employee who works on drones. If this is GoPro’s drone (and that’s a big if), it’s like nothing else on the market today.

The best GoPro videos of 2015, as picked by GoPro

The most exciting thing that my family did with a GoPro this year was take it on a roller coaster at Disney World. That’s as much action as our camera saw in 2015, but as it so happens, there are plenty of significantly more active individuals around the world with access to GoPro cameras.

Why rumors that Apple might acquire GoPro aren’t as crazy as you think

Would Apple actually consider buying GoPro? It seems like a ridiculous question except, as MarketWatch informs us, GoPro’s stock has actually jumped recently on speculation that the company might get bought out by Cupertino. Two analysts have recently released research notes making the case for Apple to buy GoPro and they make for interesting, although not entirely convincing, arguments. More →

The Martian 2035 Earth iPhone Android

‘The Martian’ is a great movie… but it’s also loaded with hilariously outdated tech

‘The Martian’ is a great movie… but it’s also loaded with hilariously outdated tech

The Martian is a spectacular movie, so you should definitely see it. The film paints a believable picture of the first human missions to Mars. The technology that fictional astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) uses to try to survive on the planet is inspired by existing technology, as NASA itself has revealed.

But there’s plenty of laughably outdated tech in The Martian, the kind that tech fans will immediately notice. And no, it’s not the advanced NASA geeky tech Watney uses, but the everyday tech shown in scenes back on Earth. Caution, some spoilers follow, so in case you plan to see/read The Martian, you’d better stop reading this right now. More →
