Each week on Wednesday, @SomeDrones will feature the latest stories posted with the hashtag #dronesforgood. #Dronesforgood showcases everything that SomeDrones.com loves about the drone community. It’s a way for drone enthusiasts to show how they’re changing the public opinion of drones, from a military or mischievous view to one that shows drones as a photography tool, hobby, lifestyle, innovation, or future tech.
James Mitchell Crow’s piece for @CosmosMagazine is all about the love affair scientists are having with drones. Why? No, not because scientists have no real human emotions and can only form complex relationships with machines. It’s because drones are making their lives easier in ways ranging from counting penguins to wheat farming spectrometers.
Radiation is bad for humans. Drones are not humans. Using this highly scientific proof, @ImiTec developed the AARM (Advanced Airborne Radiation Mapping) drone, which can be used to monitor radiation after a release of nuclear material. Because again, radiation is bad for humans. I cannot stress this enough.
@iaeaorg is part of a team developing a fixed wing drone that uses gamma radiation to eradicate the tsetse fly from underdeveloped areas where the pests are known to spread disease. This could end one of two ways, 1) the successful eradication of the tsetse fly or 2) an army of tsetse fly hulk monsters that destroy on command. #dronesforevil mWahahahaha!
