From Wearables to Flyables

I know we've been talking a lot about wearables so far... and implantables... but these are all just different points of view in a smart world right? Check this flyable out!

And yes- before you rush off and check- I've already made sure that "flyable" is a real word!

This suits my research focus ever so nicely...

I've written on luggables, wearables and implantables...  flyables are just the icing on the cake.

More about this award winning UAV here taken from a write up in the Sydney Morning Herald.

"An unmanned aerial drone was able to find a dummy of a missing bushwalker with no human intervention in what CSIRO believes is a world-first for a non-military drone.
The Outback Rescue Challenge, a competition for developers of “unmanned airbourne vehicles” (UAVs), was held at Kingaroy in Queensland from Monday to Wednesday.
CSIRO researchers say the performance this week by amateur group Canberra UAV means drones could be assisting rescue workers in as little as five years."
