Hackaday Podcast 194: FPV Contest, Seven Words, Lots Of Coffee, And Edible Drones

This week, Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Assignments Editor Kristina Panos fumbled through setting up Mumble on Kristina’s new-ish computer box before hitting record and talking turkey. First off, we’ve got a fresh new contest going on, and this time it’s all about the FPVs. Then we see if Kristina can stump Elliot once again with a sound from her vast trove of ancient technologies.

Then there’s much ado about coffee roasters of all stripes, and you know we’re both coffee enthusiasts. We have many words to say about the subject, but none of them are any of the 7+ dirty ones that the FCC would probably rather we didn’t. Finally, we take a look at a bike frame that’s totally nuts, a clock that seemingly works via magic, and a drone made of rice cakes. So find something to nibble on, and check out this week’s episode!

  1. Regarding not relying on a single sensor when making critical decisions; never forget about the Boeing 737 MAX’s MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) and its original dependence on only one AOA (angle of attack) sensor…

  2. I’m stoked to have discovered this site, have yet to had a chance to explore it properly, but I assure you I’ve some really awesome things designed, as well as some dumb ones too!
    My uncle and I have gone nearly as close to patenting a couple, just working on the engineering end! Thank you for coming up with new interesting things to keep those, that are like us, still keeping hope in human kind and neat stuff
