Newsman jeff hill what’s happening buddy. Bien. This week has been very active with news uh from all over the place, so we’ll get started out of japan, wing copter and alana. Pin al nippon airways have partnered to use the wing copters to be able to fly drones to rare places to build a drone. Logistical network establishing it and scaling it all over the country. In the first phase, we are starting in goto to deliver medical goods faster to remote regions and therefore saving and improving lives with ringcopter’s high performance drone solution. We can reach remote islands with high speed. Strong partnership with green copter will bring dramatic change in logistics in japan, and it will bring great opportunities to provide better quality life in near future and beyond. Well that’s neato that’s, a cool thing it’s very cute. It is yeah and and that’s that’s able to fly extremely long distances. They’Ve been testing this since uh, Creo 2019, but the areas that they’re going to be sending this to are traditionally areas that have been extremely difficult for them to do any kind of deliveries. Bien, Muy bien. Me gusta, Muy bien. So next we have a photographer frodo alvarez now, we’ve seen in the past uh people that will create uh pictures in the sky using drones. Um this one, Por otro lado, is a little bit spectacular because this artist uses five drones, all right and what’s. It what’s he doing with him he’s using five drones to recreate a 40 meter high football titan, so he’s five yeah, so he’s light painting with them.
This is a timed exposure and everything so that’s cool yeah. I want to know where he got his glow in the dark mask. Where do you get that? Did you see that too? Actually i want that. What i, what i loved is the fact that they did this with uh different colored lights. You know so each one of the the drones basically filled out like the arms and and the clothes were separate. It was really well done. Sí. I wouldn’t have the patience to do something like that, but that is awesome. I’Ve never done any light Music. It painting be cool to try that out, yeah hold on hold on jeff. Did you say that was a football light painting that was soccer yeah? What are you talking about man? Lo siento, all of europe Laughter, all right so sony has is – is bringing forth their air peak drone and every so often they like to give us a little bit of a sneak peek as to what is happening with this drone. Recientemente, they shared company’s testing methods for the air peak, showing this drone being able to stabilize and maintain position in 43.6 mile per hour winds. The more i hear about this thing, the more impressed i am with it. How do you think the matrice 210 would do in the same conditions? Think it will be drifted? You think i think it would look at that big old fan, i’d love to just try to stand in a wind tunnel until i couldn’t anymore i’m, just impressed with how stable this thing is.
I mean it is literally rock solid in these just extremely high winds. Realmente es, and yeah and they’re also talking about this thing supposed to be able to function in in various weather conditions, so like rain, cold weather, etcetera. Uh they’re, son, making it sort of an all purpose. Drone is the string there just to show the wind moving or is it serving a purpose? Do you think i would imagine it’s part of uh showing where the the travel of the wind is over the drone. The string wants to have fun too ken, Claro, Sí. Lo siento, i hadn’t thought about the the needs of the string. Gracias, ashley you’re, always right there, Muy bien. So for the first time in human history, we have flown on a foreign on another planet. This is so cool check this out here it is the the mars stuff. Is the image from our onboard navigation camera showing us hovering above the surface of mars? How incredible we’re, gon na wait for the perseverance rover image of us Applause? We can now say that human beings have thrown a rotorcraft on another planet that is fan freaking tastic. Look at that it was a very short flight, just a little test flight, but i guess they’re gon na go over that berm later do some more well yeah. I mean so the first flight was to to as proof of concept. Obviously they they tested this thing on uh, you know and on on earth, and they tried their best to simulate the mars environment, but obviously, once it gets there, they they need to be able to make sure that’s going to work.
So the fact that it took off and flew and maintained its location was the first really important part of it, but the stability uh, the fact that it didn’t drift anywhere uh that that thing was just absolutely spot on just truly amazing. I cannot wait to see how they use this going forward. This is very exciting time, we’re living in we’re living in the future. So next, in the news we have some really interesting stuff that comes out of the uk first is a huge rock fall that happened in jurassic coast in dorset um. This was just absolutely enormous um. This is the first collapse that this area has had in almost 60 years um and the amount of of the side of this cliff that fell was just phenomenal. Did they lose any of the sheep? Did any of the sheep die in this thing because they were right on the edge? Bien, all right yeah? I don’t have any indication that that any of the sheep went with it um. You know obviously there’s hazards in the area, but uh because of some heavy rains, the area around there had softened and that whole section fell now not to be outdone. Por otro lado, we have this footage that come from wales. This is uh from one of their areas, and this is even more terrifying, because not only did they have the collapse, but there’s houses there, oh yeah there’s little bits of manicured lawn down there on the beach now yeah.
Look at that how’d. You like to be that homeowner that suddenly lost like most of his yard. Bien, i mean there’s a lot less to pay your gardener. Now right, Sabes, Es decir, Ver! You build your house on a cliff that’s, the the chance you take. What about these other houses down there that are on the cliff? You know what if it happened there that would that would have been bad. You think the value of the other houses went down after this, because you know you can’t be a real estate agent in uh that area and go uh uh check out this out. No, not that one, not that don’t look over there yeah the beach is right. allí, Bien, i know – i know your neighbor’s lawn – is now part of the beach, but uh don’t worry about that. That only happens once every 100 days so over here we have this house. That’S got to be awkward but um that’s, a terrible thing. Man that’s! If anybody was down the beach, that would have been it. Venga, sí, i want to be what it sounds like um. I thought there would be a follow up. I made it sound like a freight train. Everything sounds like a freight train man that tornado is coming towards me. It sounded like a very change. Just like a friendship. I mean they just can’t. They have no other descriptor man that hurricane came up on me sounds just like a just like a freak train.
Estoy, lo siento, i digress and back to the news. I always wonder if those people freak out at train crossings, then all right uh. So next in the news we have some video footage. This comes out of norman oklahoma. This was a situation on march 28th, where they had an active shooter situation, and the police department used their drone in a very unique way. We had the drone go up, trying to figure out where this guy was shooting from and when the drone went up. It took his attention off of us Music. We got a drone in here. I think he’s shooting at your drone we’re clear. He does not have eyes on yet, and he started shooting at the drone and going after that, which again gave us a little bit of a reprieve that actually was able to fully redirect him away from our area for the most part. Después de, he was still shooting. He actually shot a little bit more towards the south team. That was still stuck down there, but he had taken his attention off of us and the citizens, which was a very good thing. That’S awesome yeah to use a drone for a distraction, technique, yeah yeah that’s great. What a great idea yeah that was, that was really uh an interesting thing because i don’t think they originally intended for the drone to be the distraction technique. I think once they realized that the guy was going to be distracted by it, they were like hey, keep that up right, Correcto, Sí, that’s other, más, more good news about about the use of drones.
That’S great, i love it uh so also uh. This is some amazing footage. That’S come out of russia uh. This is a moscow based journalist, maria poster who uh went out recently and filmed an abandoned russian village that has been completely encapsulated in ice, whoa huh, No! No! This is the village of sverning um and it’s an abandoned village. You know it’s it’s there’s, very few people remaining there um and they had some very terrible conditions come through with uh some some uh, some freezing, drizzle and rain and stuff, and this whole place just got completely inundated by it. Why is it abandoned? Es? Es? It one of those towns near chernobyl or something it’s, no it’s, just a village that that people are moving away from you know: it’s it’s it’s been dying over over time, um it’s in a very remote area, and people just don’t, really want to live there as Much anymore, but yeah because once in a while, the weather is crap. Clearly i was gon na, say yeah. You know what i would abandon a place that gets completely frozen over yeah right, Wow, Es decir, Loco, Sí, cosas increíbles, but what a great uh place to film a movie or something? Venga, sí, Sí, because you know it’s it’s, not radioactive, like some of the abandoned places. In russia shoot a shoot, a bond film there there you go yeah that’s, una buena idea, all right so out of martinez california.
This was kind of interesting, so a canadian mountie posing as a teenage girl, convinced or i guess, was part of a sting operation to catch a predator, and this video footage was taken in martinez, california of them catching daniel paul 41. Who showed up thinking that he was going to meet a teen and instead met the police department? Oh mm, Hmm, good yep and they use the drone to film the whole thing. Get these creepers off the street. Absolutely wow that’s crazy, Sí. I hate to think about that stuff happening in the world, but people crazy people be crazy. Yo. Sabes, i think crazy is just about as as as as crazy as you can be when it comes to australia. This next story, a hobbyist named duncan duncan brochie, was on a fishing trip and he caught this video footage of a shark chasing and trying to eat a crocodile. Oh i’ve always wondered who would win in uh the epic battle between shark and crocodile? Ni idea, i i thought at some point in the video. You might actually see a confrontation like that, but apparently the crocodile sensing that the shark was nearby uh bee, lined it to her to a rock but uh, but that shark was thinking. Ah yeah. It’S a tasty treat, i wanted to see him fight. That would have been amazing. Who do you think would win? I think the croc would win man, they have don’t, they have better, more powerful bite force yeah if the crowd could get it.
If the croc was able to spin around and get a hold of it, i would imagine the croc probably would have done enough damage to and crocodiles do those little spinny moves. They grab you and they spin real fast, oh right, trying to rip the meat off. Hey crocodile versus myrrh woman, Music crocodile again yeah crack it up that that’s a pay per view. I would. I would like to see all right so uh out of the western district and uh. I think this is victoria uh. Some brothers have come up with a new way of being able to muster the the cattle and stuff on their property after one of them was injured in a motorcycle accident, and they realized that maybe using drones might be a better way of doing this than getting Injured, we grew up mustering on horseback here, so over the stony undulated country. We got to a point where we thought we need to implement something even better than that again, so we introduced drones onto the farm to move away from handling stock with motorbikes on the motorbikes. It could take us half a day to a full day, whereas now, with the drone it’s a matter of a few hours, it’s a much more efficient way of doing it and a lot safer. If you crash a drone or you just get another drone, whereas if i fall off a horse, then who knows what’ll happen, i think there there’s a bad culture in farming that my father did it.
Por ahí, my father’s father did it that way so that’s just the way it should be done. I think that needs to change a fair bit, because a lot of a lot of performing practices can be done, a lot safer and a lot better way. Safety is incredibly important on farm it’s number one. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to myself or my family, so you wouldn’t want that on any of your workers or any of their families as well. Is there nothing that drones can’t? Do honestly? No? No, but listen to me, those two men could read the encyclopedia to me and i would just listen. I i could watch that clip 27 times and i’ll. Be like absolutely thank you. What is your favorite foreign accent? Ashley? Vaya, i don’t know it depends. It depends on what mood i’m in that day, what what’s yours, Jeff, i’ve i’ve, always been uh preferential to the english accent. British british accent. Bien, yeah you lived there for a while. Sí, i did yeah yeah wait, wait yeah! He did. I lived yeah. I lived in uh tunbridge wells uh for a year and it was fantastic yeah, Sí, sí. He ate fish and chips. My favorite, my favorite foreign accent, is a toss up. I can’t decide what sex here, uh scottish accent or an irish. I think i’d have to go with irish. Me encanta. I love it from the girls are like you know, with the hard teas and they’re talking like this hi, hey ken, how did it i love it? So i love them Music, bring it back to the news so recently uh as part of a marketing launch.
A a a shanghai based entertainment company, called billy billy, has had a huge uh drone show where they used 1500 o 15, 000 o 1500 drones to form a bunch of things in the sky. What was really fantastic about this was that as part of the marketing, they created a qr code in the sky, and anybody that was within visual sight of it could hold their phones up and the qr code would work, y ya sabes, link them to the app Really, as an interesting aside to this uh greg coonert, our all time, favorite uh little hacker decided that he was gon na hold his phone up to the video of this, and it also works. You have to that’s. You know these drone cluster drone shows. Some of them are a lot better than others. The resolution is increasing. You know the the drones are getting smaller and they’re able to control more at a time pretty soon it’ll be just like little pixels. You won’t be able to tell ah it’s so fun living in the future. There it is our qr code is just yeah hold on. Let me see there, it is there it is so if you want to scan it, Adelante. Qué es, what does it bring up something it it’ll it’ll, take them to the the billability app it’s, their online entertainment, aplicación, Bien, Es decir, neat, Sí, yeah cool all right, so companies all over the world have come up with unmanned flying vehicles from scratch, but one Unique company called x wing is taking a completely different approach because they know that software on existing aircraft will allow them to auto land.
There are airports and places that have the ability to support auto landing through the autopilots, so this company, using a cessna grand caravan 208, has tied into that auto flight software and they’re, using these planes as drones to do deliveries it’s completely automated. Ah, in what country? Not this country, not this country, is it this country that’s? What i’m checking on right now? Bien, because that this is in the this is in this – is in the united states? Is it in florida? Oh? Bien, there you go! That explains it! Anything goes in florida, crazy people down there yeah right. The faa is like what you want to fly: a pilotless plane from one airport to another: oh florida, whatever yeah, Estoy, Bien, bien, they’ll, let spacex and tesla. You know fly remotely piloted cargo flights. So why not uh this company? You know not one accident, not one accident, not one person’s been hurt or killed as a result of these photography, drones fpv drones that we’ve been flying for years uh, but just you wait, somebody’s sending their tube socks via the amazon, drone or ups drone. Somebody going to get killed, somebody going to own half a ups, just saying all right, it’ll last for a week, all right now back to me all right so last in the news, blue origin recently launched their uncrewed test flight out of new shepard’s subway or the Ninja the new shepard subworthical sub orb, you got it jeff, you got it let’s do this over come on, you got it come on.
Can i solve the puzzle all right, i’ll just do this i’d like to solve pat i’d like to solve the puzzle, Muy bien! Go ahead uh, so the new shepard sub orbital vehicle was flown on april 14th, out of their west texas facility, Bien, Estoy. Going to show this video. The video that you’ll see is from a drone and the only job of the the drone pilot is to track the rocket going past it and he missed it. He missed it. Watch this that’s, not the drone shot. Yet here we go all right all right, it’s on you, man just track it up, no problem at all, just track that thing. Keep it in frame, keep it in free, keep it in frame dip wad. Oh, he had one job and there you see all the speed leading off of the off of the vehicle and waiting for our be3 engine to relight there. It goes Music. I like that sound landing here, all this technology to bring a rocket down vertically and land. Like in a sci fi movie, and they let an intern operate the drone camera, oh we got everything covered. We got everything planned down to the last millisecond what’s that oh larry’s, the drone operator larry is sick, voy a, let your cousin do it whatever. As much as i was like, i don’t know – maybe maybe it’s just maybe it’s just me but uh, Es decir, that is very cool.
Gracias. Jeff. Before i go you never. Let me ever tell a joke. You know that oh yeah you never ever. Let me tell a joke: everybody else in this show gets to tell a joke, but i never get to tell one well that’s, because the ones you tell aren’t funny i’m kidding man. Bien. What do you need?
