DroneRise – drone-umbrella and using drones to rescue whales

Good morning, here are some of the headlines you may have missed. We have news on an umbrella-drone and a video from DJI in which they show how drones are being used to rescue and free whales that are entangled in fishing lines and other ocean debris.

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Check out today’s video called “Land and Sea” that was filmed and edited by Tom Scott. The footage was collected during a 3,000-mile road trip and some other short trips across the country and the video shows some of the nation’s best places to visit including Canyon Lands, Lake Tahoe, Big Sure, Niagara Falls, Arches National Park and more. Enjoy!
