Release Year:
It’s been estimated that the US has murdered around 2,400 people with its drone-strike program, leaving many people with concerns about the future. As drone technology sharpens right along side the advancements in artificial intelligence, could we be far from the armed robot takeover depicted in the Terminator franchise. I know the Terminator movies aren’t documentaries, but they do bring up valid points of the dangerous crossbreeding of technology and weaponry. Thank goodness not everyone is using these drone devices for death and destruction.
For example, Ryan Staake has used one of them with 7 GoPro camera attachments as a means of creating this ultra fish-eyed 3 dimensional perspective of planet Earth that is Booka Shade’s “Crossing Boarders.” As a special treat to all Visual/Sound/Walls attendees, not only will this clip be played in its 2-D version on multiple screens and surfaces, but will also be featured on an Oculus Rift Device, transforming the world of this video into a virtual reality.
Finally, drones are doing something nice for a change.
