ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This cam-drone, illustrating an Atlantic article on the subject by Alexis Madrigal, is the work of Simon Jardine. Jardine's aerial imaging business has an online home at Eye in the Sky; check out his Flickr gallery for more.
Did someone say “Eye in the Sky”?
I laugh at the tag, but there you go, a perfect use for it. That website should have that song playing on an endless loop that can’t be stopped the whole time you’re on it.
oh god what did they do to those poor photos
Drone, schmone. Go fly a kite.
Currently, in the US, it is illegal to fly RC planes or heli’s for profit, including aerial photography. You can do it for free, you just can’t charge $$ for it. That may change, or it may not, or the rules will be so difficult to overcome, that it will squash what seems to be a burgeoning business elsewhere. Time will tell.
That’s a weird law. What’s the rationale?
Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
Here comes a chopper to chop off your head.
