Your monkey's Kung Fu is not strong ...
I'm going to go on the record and predict drone ground troops within 15 years.
Physical transmission of information (say, across political borders; drop a crapload of USB drives with contraband information and there's no way to stop the spread); search-and-recovery; terrain/topographic mapping (or any other kind of "expanding the network" task, up to and including expanding actual information networks...and yes, that includes covert surveillance, I admit)...
The only non-evil ideas that spring to mind would be miniature live action recreations of the Battle of Britain, the Battle of Midway, and that one scene in Apocalypse Now set to The Ride of Valkyrie.
Search and rescue after earthquakes or similar disaster.The quads search semi-autonomously, relaying information back to each other. A 3-d map of the rubble is formed. Being small, they can search small spaces that people may find difficult. CO2 sensors could allow them to pinpoint survivors.
Being able to convert my boss into a screaming pile of grey goo would be pretty good.Or did you mean morally good?
Construction, for one. And if you think that's borderline evil since it could lead to reduced jobs for humans (which is an argument I have some sympathy with), consider that the same kind of algorithms and building techniques may turn out to be necessary for large-scale space construction.
Agriculture - spreading seeds in a pattern. Firefighting - exploring burning areas to rescue persons trapped by fire. Documentation of disastersSearching buildings fro stress fractures, faulty foundations.
Give me a drone swarm and I will show you just HOW MUCH GOOD I can accomplish with it. You can trust me.Absolutely.
With all the ghost and bigfoot hunting reality shows, it's only a matter of time before we get a weekly UFO hunter show. With a drone swarm at my command, the comedic potential would be epic!Don't look at me like that. Laughter qualifies as "good."
Anything Hardison does with it.
I think they could be cool for Halftime shows if you put lights on them. Then they can spell things out in the air, and make cool patterns, even in 3 dimensions.
Epic Drone vs. Mayfly Battle shot with the highest speed camera possible and set to Hurricane by 30 seconds to Mars.
The post-disaster assistance was what I thought of too, well detailed by other commenters. And really cool aerial footage at football games??
Aggressive Quadrotor Formation Flying:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-dkonAXOlQI'm having trouble imagining what constructive purpose there could be for robots bursting through a window and resuming formation on the other side in less than a second, I really am.Perhaps I'm just a bit obtuse, but I don't see how Search & Rescue can translate to Breach & Clear.
I flashed on Parker's glee when using the RC helicopter to chase prison guards. Please, for the sake of humanity, do not give Parker a drone swarm.But they would be good for finding and corralling fugitives, to put a positive spin on it.
Something involving Congress comes to mind.C'mon, that'd be good!
" . . . within 15 years."Admit, Mike. You're a robot drone who is trying to lull us into complacency.I'm betting that someone will be killing folks with these in five.* * *Yes, you gotta know that Hardison would get a major hardware-geek hard-on over these things.
Evil uses: Imagine a paparazzi photographer with a swarm of these hovering over the super-secret wedding of the starlet du jour. Security can knock some of them down, but only one has to get through and take the big-money photo.Non-evil uses: search and rescue and good journalism, true, but you know sooner or later they'd be used for advertising. (Wait, is that an evil use?)
I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords! As a trusted member of the ecopolitical-socialization collective (i.e. a "schoolteacher"), I would be useful in rounding up and co-opting others. Just saying...
Unrelated to this post but have you ever considered doing an AMA on Reddit? It would be awesome. You might have to introduce yourself first but I'm sure tons of people would come out of the woodwork with questions about you and what you do.ALSO, I think it would be a really positive way to gain a ton of support for the show. I think Wil Wheaton did one a year ago and a lot of Redditors expressed interest in watching the show after that. My point is, Reddit (and many other online communities) are lightning in a bottle. And it's still in a stag where a lot of people don't realize its capabilities (marketing people. and thank got they don't realize it!) And if you know how to use that resource, it can be a very powerful tool. Look at what they did for SOPA! And they tend to be really supportive of anyone who strokes their collective ego (by doing an AMA) and just having the humility to interact with fans. Ali Larter did an AMA a few days ago and I'm sure that you would get downvoted to hell for saying a negative thing about her to any redditor because they adore her for giving them some of her time. Anyway, I love Leverage and I think this would be a really positive way for the show to gain some traction and also, I'm sure there are a lot of people curious about showrunning and would have some insightful questions! So consider it!
Hey, fellow redditor! Jon Rogers doing an AMA on Reddit would be awesome. But fair warning, Jon: if you're going to do an AMA, don't do it like Woody Harrelson (as in, use it as shameless self-promotion of your projects and then only answer very few unrelated questions with short, glib answers). Otherwise things will turn very ugly, very quickly. Haha. That just happened today and I can't even count all the photoshopped images making fun of him and talk of boycotting his shitty movie. Seriously though, come do one. We won't bite.
what does it mean that every time i watch this i hear like a voice in my head that just says, "it's time."
Oh! I like this published, christian louboutin will pay attention to it.
That's just awesome!
Replacing humanity isn't a morally good outcome?(Your 'please prove you're not a robot' captcha seems somewhat speciesist in this context.)(Meatbag.)

From Cruel to be Kind:Parents could monitor their children in school and berate them when they did something wrong, if the drones were equipped with Skype. Of course, this is evil, but it is evil for the purpose of good.
Wow.To paraphrase Dr. Kreiger from Archer, "and the best part is… that they're LEARNING."http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sUeGC-8dyk&feature=youtu.be

Hm... Positive things?Weather mapping around an airport - a swarm that can detect and map vortices in real-time could be integrated with air traffic systems to route traffic to the least hazardous runways.Massive swarm painting! Equip a dozen drones with cans of CMYK paint, feed them input from a printer driver, and you've got instant billboards!Equip each drone with a wi-fi transceiver and set them to fly an optimal distance from each other. Use the drones to set up an instant, portable ad-hoc large scale data network for outdoor festivals, search & rescue missions, sporting events or anything where you don't want to run a bunch of wires all over the place.
This blog hasn't been updated in nearly two months and there are still plenty of past episodes with questions unanswered! What gives??

BEAST Yang Yoseob has shed tears during the recordings of “Hello”.A representative from KBS2 “Hello” had revealed on the 14th of August, that Beast were invited as special guests on “Hello”. During the recordings, BEAST member Yang Yoseob, shed tears when talking about dreams to be singers.According to that representative, “When aspiring singers talked about their singing dreams, and how it’s hard to chase them and expressed their sad thoughts of giving this dream up, Yang Yoseob was seen choking with tears”. Yang Yoseob was also a singer who faced many setbacks before he managed to debut. Because of this, he could understand the feelings of those who aspires to be singers, hence the tears.
