Imperial Star Destroyer #Drone
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/30/imperial-star-destroyer-drone/

French maker Olivier C builds custom housing for quadcopters that turn them into the crazy “Star Wars” drones you’re looking for. We’ve already seen him build Millennium Falcon and TIE Interceptor drones, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, with a few new videos displaying his latest creation, an Imperial Star Destroyer drone.

Project Breadcrumb could help lost drones find their way home #drone #droneday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/30/project-breadcrumb-could-help-lost-drones-find-their-way-home-drone-droneday/

When a drone loses communication with its pilot, there’s little the remote control pilot to do. It’s a situation that’s bad for drone pilots and scary for the FAA. Announced last week, Project Breadcrumb is a collaborative project between drone company PrecisionHawk and the University of Toronto that wants to let drones fly home safely even when they lose their means of communication.

5 most sci-fi tech predictions from SXSW #SciFiSunday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/29/5-most-sci-fi-tech-predictions-from-sxsw-scifisunday/

Thanks to Ian for sending in this cool piece from Dazed about the sci-fi tech forecasts from sxsw.

Now that the Interactive (read: technology) part of South By Southwest has closed, it’s time to recap on what we learnt, other than the fact that the hype around wearable tech isn’t going away any time soon. This year was a special bumper year for fashion at SXSW. For the first time, the convention curated a special programme called SXstyle that blended science, tech and fashion into one delightfully packaged look into the future of design. Here’s five of the biggest predictions from the cutting edge of fash-tech.

Mathematician of the day: Sophie Germain #WHM15 #WomensHistoryMonth
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/29/mathematician-of-the-day-sophie-germain-whm15-womenshistorymonth/

Marie-Sophie Germain was a French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher. Despite initial opposition from her parents and difficulties presented by society, she gained education from books in her father’s library and from correspondence with famous mathematicians such as Lagrange, Legendre, and Gauss. One of the pioneers of elasticity theory, she won the grand prize from the Paris Academy of Sciences for her essay on the subject. Her work on Fermat’s Last Theorem provided a foundation for mathematicians exploring the subject for hundreds of years after. Because of prejudice against her gender, she was unable to make a career out of mathematics, but she worked independently throughout her life. In recognition of her contribution towards advancement of mathematics, an honorary degree was also conferred upon her by the University of Göttingen six years after her death. At the centenary of her life, a street and a girls’ school were named after her. The Academy of Sciences established The Sophie Germain Prize in her honor.

I first learned about Germain primes from the play Proof I saw at the Naples Philharmonic. Some plays and movies are informative. Happy Birthday Sophie.

Make a Thermal Camera with #Arduino #celebratephotography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/28/make-a-thermal-camera-with-arduino-celebratephotography/

Have you ever had the desire to see what can not be seen? I never had the ability to see in thermal infrared, and it is rather cool to be able to see in the thermal infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Unfortunately, most thermal (FLIR) cameras are very expensive. In 2011 cameras frequently cost several thousand dollars. This project was created to develop a cheaper solution at a fraction of the cost.

“Rose” Introduced A New Generation to Doctor Who Ten Years Ago #SciFiSunday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/03/29/rose-introduced-a-new-generation-to-doctor-who-ten-years-ago-scifisunday/


Earlier this week, in celebration of Dr. Who‘s reincarnation turning ten, Tor.com published a great ode to Rose, whose character often gets overlooked when looking back at the series’ major players.

Ten years ago to the day, Doctor Who returned to television screens. It’s been a wild decade so far, and for many fans, this was where their Whovian journey began. But with a show that evolves so quickly and so often, it can be easy to forget what made the world love Who all over again. For many of us, “Rose” was a gateway into the world of the Doctor and his TARDIS.
