Humans Need Not Apply

We are in the middle of another economic upheval. The Scouts of Troop 534 “Hey!” are in an excellent position to reap the benefits. This 15-minute video tells why.

Powerful quote: Self driving cars don’t need to be perfect. They just need to drive better than us.

Flying Robots

An unmanned arial vehicle (UAV) is a flying robot. Some people call them drones. Accenture, the global consulting firm, has prepared a 12-page report describing opportunities that involve UAVs.

Title of the report: It’s Time for Flying Robots. Worthwhile reading for anyone interested in science, engineering, or business.

Unauthorized iPhone 6 Crystal Display

Our Scouts are passionate about technology, as well as the businesses that create technology. This unauthorized video sits at the intersection of the two:

The World’s Strictest Parents - Barbados

In this video, two British teenagers enjoy rule-breaking behavior in their home country. Their parents send them to live with a strict family in Barbados. The predictable conflict proves interesting.

Warning: The video contains some profanity and adult subjects. Worth watching.
