Drone fans…keep your eyes open for this amazing new drone!
New Drone in town? December 3, 2021
With Falcon-Like Claws, This Aerial Drone Can Land, Grip and Perch on Branches. The quadrocopter was also able to catch objects tossed by researchers. The quadrocopter dubbed “SNAG” has feet and legs modeled after a peregrine falcon William Roderick via Stanford University
A new drone is taking inspiration from nature’s best flyers: birds. The bio-inspired aerial bot, which was developed by Stanford engineers, combines four sets of propellers on top with a set of bird-like features below, such as grasping claws and bending legs that allow it to land smoothly almost anywhere.

Don't forget- once you log into RipTydz, you'll see all the small boxes just above the cam, that say "Bar" "Beach" "Blvd", "Vollyball" You need to click the cam you want to view. (Someone thought I was just linking one cam.)

South Carolina inmate in jail: "Must have uese drones in a prison escape..." Read about it here!
S.C. prisons go high-tech to ground contraband deliveries by drones. Call it the drone war. And South Carolina's prisons are fighting it with state-of-the-art technology. Drones also drop tools used for daring prison breaks. They bring drugs and cell phones to inmates waiting in the creation yards. They can ignite riots from prisoners scrambling to grab special deliveries.
Featured Drones - All over S.C. drones have become very popular. Ft.Sumter, Military drones that are used to find and kill terrorists overseas are being piloted in South Carolina and a permanent headquarters for the operation will be in the works soon. If you come across any drone links you think would be a good addition to this page, please send me the link!
Not local, but this made me smile! Talk about the tail wagging the dog....One resourceful man in Cyprus used a drone to walk his dog while on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The pooch seemed happy, trotting through the empty streets of Limassol on Cyprusâ?? southeast coast.
From Scott Krause: Cargo Ship capsizes of the coast of Georgia. The Golden Ray of "Roll on Roll off" cargo shop capsized in the St. Simon Sound in Brunswick, Georiga. She was built in 2017and it is the length of two football fields. Her gross tonnage comes in at a whopping 71,178 tons, and she is carrying 4,000 Hyundai and Kia vehicles that were to arrive in Baltimore. All 42 crew members were rescued, the last 4 just before this was shot. ©Scott Krause Aerials. View all Scott Krause's amazing Web Cams

You are likely aware that there are many uses for drones other than video production, but you may be surprised how many and how varied the uses are. And the number is growing fast. In fact, according to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), optimal integration of drones in the USA will result in the creation of about 100,000 jobs and an effect of $82 billion on the economy by 2025,not all of which will be in the film industry. The following list of 10 uses for drones, picked at random from a variety of choices.. New uses for drones
In light of the OD Pavilion outage, I'll tell you a story that dates back afew years. My neighbor and I drove up to NMB to hear the Shakers...probably the biggest act of the season at the Horseshoe.Â Early in the season, North Myrtle Beach experienced a lot of flooding. It was decided that the new drains would be the answer to avoid this problem. Â Throughout speing and summer, residents were forced to avoid that area of the beach due to detours and roadblocks. Finally we thought it was fixed, but them my eighbor and I were told it had been called off due to heavy winds and storms. Â There were actually people in kayaks paddling down Main Street! We left the car where we parked it and walked about the area. I took these photos of North Myrtle Beach as it should NOT have looked that night!

I thought y'all might get a kick out of this. I was standing at the first pole you see at Oceanfront Bar & Grill cam. I said to Wally, "I wonder if any of the webcam fans are watching right now?" He says "If they were, they wouldn't know you anyhow!" So he took this photo! Hugs to all y'all cam fans ;-) It is not a webcam, but it is better thqn some cams I have seen.
Here's a presentation put together by the Smithsonian Channel featuring Myrtle Beach
