What’s that, you don’t know what a DIY drone is? Well it’s also called an amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV, if that helps. Basically it’s an aircraft that can fly by itself, without a pilot in control. And the point is, you can make one at home. Berkeley resident and Wired magazine editor-in-chief Chris Anderson does, along with his kids.
Chris not only makes these amazing machines, but he’s also convened the community of DIY drone enthusiasts online, and catalogs the collective intelligence of these tinkerers for everyone’s benefit. If you’re interested in checking it out, his Getting Started page on DIYdrones.com is a great place to, well, get started.
Or just come get the scoop from him in person at 1pm on Sunday, October 16th, taco in hand.
