    "Thanks, Rover!"

      Rover from The Prisoner is what came to mind to me as well. Boston Dynamics pretty much has the Hound from Fahrenheit 451 underway. What sci-fi horror is next?

    "Thanks for coming in to interview"
    "No problem!"
    "Can I get you a bottle of water or anything?"
    "Sure, thanks"

    Vagina prolapse.

  4. I don't know if the hybrid blimp/drone folks are taking advantage of this, but it looks like the FAA's new registration rules don't apply to them. Because the FAA set the criterion for registration as: weight at takeoff greater than 0.55 pounds. And a blimp's weight at takeoff is by definition less than zero.

    • Karellen says:

      You'd think the FAA would understand the distinction between weight and mass. OK, they're not NASA, but still, lighter than air flying machines have been around for longer than heavier than air ones.

      Even so, they might be able to get away with it as "pounds" are a unit of mass, not a unit of weight/force (c.f. lbf), so "0.55 pounds at takeoff" could still apply to blimps.
