This video from Tracking Point is confusing:

The breakdown by time:

  • 0:02 – Shady abandoned concrete buildings
  • 0:06 – Closed circuit surveillance cameras
  • 0:08 – Drone copter
  • 0:09 – Airplane
  • 0:11 – Caged dogs
  • 0:14 – Erlenmeyer flask full of urine
  • 0:17 – Something firing on a test platform (VentureX?)
  • 0:18 – Pathway in underground lair
  • 0:20 – Welding up a storm
  • 0:22 – something random and mechanical looking (part of VentureX?)
  • 0:23 – The secret thing on the test platform from before (VentureX?)
  • 0:25 – Prescription drugs
  • 0:27 – Shady looking crate
  • 0:28 – Looks like 3 targeting displays
  • 0:31 – A drones life hangs in the balance

Tracking-Point-Remington-VentureXSo I pretty much cracked the case on what this VentureX thing does.  The question now is, will the government be buying these things from Remington for some sort of tinfoil hat type stuff?  It’s really too early to tell.  I’m looking into Urine proof suits that resist dog bites though right after I finish this post.

Remington has a website set up for VentureX that doesn’t confirm what I said, but it’s really only a matter of time.

Armed with a paintball handgun, but still it’s not like .22 LR has any more recoil:

Most annoying voice on earth in the video.  2:03 for talk about the arming of the drone.  Ban drones!   I’ve wanted a Parrot AR Drone for a while now but never got around to buying one… maybe this coming summer I’ll look into it more.

If using drones for LOLz and sustenance is more your thing make sure to watch the Burrito Bomber video below:

During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a possible Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.

Crafty Lockheed… very crafty.

They should do this in all school zones. I hate seeing people blast past kids.

Senior defense and intelligence officials said Iranian-backed insurgents intercepted the video feeds by taking advantage of an unprotected communications link in some of the remotely flown planes’ systems. Shiite fighters in Iraq used software programs such as SkyGrabber — available for as little as $25.95 on the Internet — to regularly capture drone video feeds, according to a person familiar with reports on the matter.

SkyGrabber looks like a very interesting piece of software.

From the SkyGrabber website:

SkyGrabber is offline satellite internet downloader. It intercepts satellite data( movie, music, pictures ) that downloadind by other users and saves information in your hard disk. So, you’ll get new movie, best music and funny pictures for free.

That is a direct quote… I didn’t make up that terrible grammar and spelling.
