From Our First Time Seeing a Drone at CES to TIME Magazine’s Cover

It was like magic the first time we saw a flying consumer drone


It is hard to believe that it was just 8 years ago when during our annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas each January for CES, we encountered huge lines, lots of buzz and disbelief when behind cordoned-off netting were these flying devices.


The first consumer drones began with just a few manufacturers, then over time, CES seemed like a total drone convention.


Back in 2010, the Parrot AR Drone was unveiled as the top innovation and a true spectacle.


Fast forward to today and TIME Magazine’s Special Report: The Drone Age. We have long followed and are always inspired by Alex Fitzpatrick, Deputy Director of News at TIME Magazine, but this cover story is extra, extra extraordinary and a must read.


If you though the Intel Synchronized Drone light show in the sky at the Super Ball Halftime Show, or during the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, or even above the Iconic Fountains of Bellagio with the Intel Shooting Star Drones to light up the sky to the song “Stargazing” by artist Kygo was amazing. Just wait for this. The cover of TIME Magazine has a very bright and big reveal.



Back in 2010 at CES, drones were pure science fiction, Alex Fitzpatrick’s TIME cover story (June 2018) boasts an in-depth story and primer on everything related to drones and how they flew from fantasy to a top tech innovation for the ages.

Memorial Day: Remember Our Military Family With Photos

Military Photo Memorial Day

The author’s grandfather and grandmother on their wedding day, late 1930s, Missouri

By Vanessa Mallory Kotz

 

I come from a military family, all Air Force, four generations worth. My grandfather, William Mallory, made a lifetime career of it. I don’t remember him talking about his rank or daily tasks, but I’ll never forget the stories he told of taking over as pilot on some missions because his brothers in arms had partied a little too hard the night before. It was their little secret. His buddies knew they could always rely on Bill to complete the mission and bring them home safe. He served during WWII in Paris. As a child, I was told his job was to help free the Jews and all people oppressed by Hitler, a very bad man. Only as an adult do I understand what that meant, and I do so with pride.

 

 

Both his sons served during the Vietnam War, enlisting as soon as they were old enough. My uncle was older and sent to the front lines where he worked as an aircraft mechanic. During a raid at the air field a Vietnamese man rushed him, and my uncle was forced to shoot to save his own life. When he looked at the lifeless body of his would-be-assassin, he realized it was his barber from the village. A man he was friendly with and fond of. It was his only kill. Well into his 70s, my uncle still dreams about this man. He’s sure that the Vietnamese solider didn’t recognize him in the heat of battle. So the story goes.
