With all the Wars - People often forget the positive uses of Drones or how much fun they can be!

Panama City, Florida: 5-13-2024

With so many Wars going on it is sometimes difficult to remember that Drones and Bots have many positive uses. They are also fun to play with and are for people of all ages.

Several Days ago a severe storm with tornados hit Tallahassee, Florida. Much of the Area was without power or water for a day or more. After helping with the cleanup and the power returned I headed over to Panama City, Florida to check on our properties there.

You can find more information on how bad the storm was online or on my LinkedIn profile: Todd W. Byars, Tallahassee, Florida - Computer Dudes. Do not worry as most everyone has had their power back since Sunday.

Moorebot Scout E for Home and Office Security

Back in January of this year Computer Dudes picked up a Moorebot Scout E to modify for building and factory inspections. We added a Temperature Sensor, A Laser Pointer at a fixed height (for reference and measurements) and a manual retrieval option. Basically it can roll under factory machines, vehicles or into hard to reach areas in buildings or at home.

The project was a success and so we kept a couple of the prototypes - reverting them back to their original form.

Now any of the Computer Dudes can access the Moorebot Scout from their phones - roll it over to the parts storage area and "see" what is physically in inverntory. It saves them a trip to the shop if the parts they need are not there.

A Moorebot was also setup in my home. I programmed it to run a "patrol" around the house and to recognize cats, dogs, and humans. This morning I use it to check on the house, the cats and the weather in Tallahassee.

Other Positive Drone Uses and Training:
Computer Dudes are working on Drone Training and Programming.
Computer Dudes offers a Drone Defense course and hands on training. Here:
Computer Dudes does Android Team Awareness Kit, ATAK, Training with Drones for Land Management and Fire Season here in North Florida.
Computer Dudes are working on Cargo Drones for individuals and companies.
Computer Dudes are researching Cargo Drones to guide large balloons for shade or cooling areas, or on a larger scale to fight global warming.
Computer Dudes do flight training and Drone Games like racing or tag for fun and competition. Human Pilots only no assists from autopilot!

So maybe take a new look at Drones and their many positive uses - then select a Drone for you or your company to try. Remember to check the laws and regulations on Drones and Drone Operations in your Nation, State and City before you select a drone and begin playing or training. Stay safe and Have Fun!

It has been a rough 7 days. Starting Last Friday 2 Major Storms hit Tallahassee, Florida.
Most of the area was without power for a couple of days.
Today I completed my storm cleanup and delivered the last of the emergency supplies to those on my list.
Everyone is safe and recovery had begun.
Thanks to all who helped, get some rest and family time when you can.
Regards - Todd W. Byars

It does not really matter where you are in Florida or the SE United States you are subject to the weather and power / internet failure even with triple redundant systems.
I just lost a nice post for this website when went to post it and the Internet blinked. Then the power blinked. Now its raining.
In 15 minutes the sun will be out again. Crazy Summer Weather!
