But this drone footage following a dedicated U.S. Post Office employee delivering mail in a completely burned-out neighborhood in Santa Rosa is one of the most striking things we've seen in a long time.The Postal Service gets a lot of knocks over their outdated technology and occasionally-questionable customer service, but the sight of this little Grumman LLV puttering through the apocalyptic remains of the city's Coffey Park neighborhood is both bizarre and uplifting all at once. At least a thousand homes in Santa Rosa went up in flames earlier this week, which means thousands of people have had their lives completely upended and worldly possessions destroyed.But just as "neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these courie..

  • Underwater drones are being eyed by the Navy for research and defense, marine biologists analyzing the Great Barrier reef, and hobbyists who simply get a kick out of exploring what lies beneath the surface. These remote operated vehicles are a tool just like their aerial counterparts, and now it seems that even the tourism industry sees their appeal. Norwegian cruise line company Hurtigruten is introducing an underwater drone footage as part of their on-board amenities. It will stream real-time video of the marine life lurking beneath its ships to passengers on board.The drone in question is a Blueye Pioneer (which we’ve reported on before), which was designed for operating in low light, is fitted with powerful thrusters to maintain course and stability. According to The Los Angeles Times, Hurtigruten will equip its remote polar water-based cruise ships with the Pioneer, and provide its customers with live footage of wildlife such as orcas, penguins, sharks, and other local species. ..

  • The Kosciuszko Bridge - a steel gateway connecting Queens and Brooklyn for 78 years - was finally demolished by explosives on Sunday morning. Many New Yorkers are content with this change, regardless of the bridge’s long history, as a modern replacement appeals to those of us with frustrating memories of Kosciuszko traffic. Besides the appeal of a new bridge, though, there’s some really great aerial footage of the demolition, captured by drone. According to the New York Times, the blast came seconds after the man in charge instructed his crew from a boat on the river. “Warm up your blasting machines,” and then, “Fire.” Seconds later, 22 million pounds of steel fell to the ground. Reportedly, Governor Cuomo (D) looked to other fellow officials nearby and asked, “Wasn’t that cool?” Cuomo himself reminisced on his childhood memories in relation to the bridge, in a speech before the demolition occurred. He admitted that “it was impossible to get to the Kosciuszko before there was traffic..
