Yep... more scary stuff... funny how things like this or Atlas Shrugged seem more relevant now than when they were written...

Just like Atlas... this is FICTION.... but when fiction starts mapping out things that happen later... is it? For those whom have read Rand... you know what I am talking about...

THIS looks to be a probable source for some of the foundational thinking of William Cooper ( space aliens as a replacement "enemy" for people to rally around )

This is a site for all things about amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Use the tabs above to navigate the site.

These are our Arduino-based open source autopilot projects:
* ArduPilot, a low-cost autopilot system for planes, quadcopters and helis.
* BlimpDuino, an autonomous blimp with both infrared and ultrasonic guidance

Other UAV/autopilot projects and code, by processor and OS type, are here.
Earlier DIY Drones projects, including Lego and cellphone autopilots, are here

I especially like the little reversal of schrodinger's cat.

I saw this guys drawing in a magazine a while back and just today made a nice little mental link to Buckminster Fullers Ideas on geometry and the universe....

which looks a lot like some of Galileos work ( not to mention thoughts of how Newton made realizations of how things were not symmetrical but elliptical ).
