In lieu of going to class on Monday, April 23, I went to a presentation in RJI.

I saw two interesting projects – an iPhone app for farmers, and a cameracoptor.

That’s not what the guys named it. This coptor has 4 blades and a face-tracking camera. The implications of this invention are pretty cool – it could be used in films, sports, television, news, even law enforcement – anything where you’d want to keep an extended view on a potentially moving subject. Though the helicopter is remote-controlled, the camerawork is automated – it specifically follows faces. They did not show it flying (I was pretty disappointed), but it was a cool presentation nonetheless.
