So this isn't something @travisdh1 would want to build and leave around?
Maybe in someone else's house. I haven't jumped on the automated assistant thing yet, I'm still quite leery of having something like that in the house.... yes, I know I carry one around in my pocket with the phone. Doesn't mean I use it.
Also doesn't mean you want yet another one reporting everything you say to the NSA.
@dafyre Are you sure you don't wear a tin foil hat as well?
*quickly whips something shiney and metallic looking behind his back*
Who? Me. Never! *coughs to cover the sound of crumbled up tin foil landing in the trash can*
These can easily be deployed in poor countries to print houses. The best part in my opinion is the lack of a need for any concrete. These machines can print houses with nothing but dirt and water. For those of you that want the machine to build bigger perfect homes complete with duct work, electrical, and wiring that might not sound great, but for homeless people in poverty stricken countries that's a win.
Never heard "Backpfeifengesicht". "Backpfeife" is an older word for "slap in the face". "Gesicht" can be directly translated to "face". Backpfeifengesicht is like saying "got a slap in the face in my face". Weird.
Oh, wait. Seems to be a 1999 song from "Die Ärzte" (the doctors), a German pop-punk band.
What comes way closer to the "d*ckhead'" mentioned in the video is "Arschgesicht" - literally "B*tthead".
@stacksofplates A lot of the same issues persist. Tracking, negative thrust compensation, flight control.
You'd be better of strapping a gun to your drone, and manually flying it up to the other drone to just shoot it down with a remotely fired gun.
Which leads us back to the issues I pointed out originally.
Ok I'm not going to argue with you about this. If you attach another drone to a drone, it's not going to be able to carry it. Ever tried to fly a drone with a barely bent prop? They don't work, it would be nearly impossible to fly one with something attached to it that isn't carefully weighted in the center. And again, they have drones that can jam the signal and take control anyway.
