Ann, I am not certain just what I think about them in my area. BUT part of considering secondary results of actions is considering how things may be neutralized. Besides that, the cjhallenge of arriving at a way to neutralize whatever calls itself the authority is always entertaining. Not to do it, but to determine how it could be done. It is a challenge sort of thing.

Also, one of the things that I am rewarded for is finding ways to avoid what others may do. It's a problem solving sort of thing.

William, sounds like you dislike the idea of drones in your hood even more than I do.

Ann, the material certainly sounded like it was created just for the drone manufacturing process. 

But if you really don't want drones in your area there are ways to discourage them from coming near you. Some of the ways are more subtle, while others are quite a bit lkess subtle. And don't forget that it is still possible to purchase some quite powerful IR lasers for a quite cheap price. And a blind drone is a harmless drone.

Argh, William, hadn't thought of that. Like I said in comments to Rob's drone post, I don't want them flying around my hood.

Ann, this may be just the right material to produce all of those helicopter drones in the future. Perfect timing on the interesting post.

Lou, cheaper and high-volume--what more could you want in (mostly) non-structural carbon composites?

Ann, yes, it seems to be a good improvement and amenable to high volume production.  I watched the video and it was very interesting.

This isn't the first carbon-fiberglass hybrid, but it appears to be one of the less expensive ones. This company also makes all-carbon and all-fiberglass compounds.

The company that brought you 3D-printed eyeglasses has launched both an improved clear polymer material for 3D printing optical components and a high-speed, precision, 3D-printing process for making small- and medium-sized batches in a few days.
We've found an amazing variety of robot hands & arms in medicine, space, and service robots, as well as R&D and assembly. Some are based on industrial designs modified for speed or dexterity, while others more closely emulate human movements, as well as human size and shape.
To give engineers a better idea of the range of resins and polymers available as alternatives to other materials, this Technology Roundup presents several articles on engineering plastics that can do the job.
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
A tiny humanoid robot has safely piloted a small plane all the way from cold start to takeoff, landing and coming to a full stop on the plane's designated runway. Yes, it happened in a pilot training simulation -- but the research team isn't far away from doing it in the real world.
