Just Drones: marrying technologies, entertainment, and the future of UAVs

Lady Gaga recently performed a 15-minute death-defying SuperBowl halftime show that skyrocketed her music sales by 1000%. To most people, that's impressive. But to some (like me), what's equally impressive is the flock of "stars" which are drones with LED lights attached forming an impressive backdrop of moving stars and an American flag, as Gaga sings the patriotic opening tune "God Bless America".

Despite being a longstanding issue in the country with billions of Vietnamese dongs spent to ease flooding situations in the country’s provinces and cities, the problem persists. Clearly, more substantial flood mitigation projects should be put in place.
