The Devil made me do it! And a couple of psychos fly jetpacks all over Dubai. Oh, and a waterproof quadcopter. Because. Waterproof quadcopter.
It’s rare that I get excited about TV shows, especially since I’m a cable cutter and basically only have Netflix. But a new show called Lucifer on Fox looks genuinely entertaining!
In a nutshell, I guess the Devil decided he didn’t want to be bad any more. So he’s going to quit his day job, and God is none too pleased. Because you know, someone has to be running things down there…
After you’re done checking that out, do not miss this crazy video of a couple of guys flying jetpacks with wings. Over Dubai. In 4k.
The video looks like it must have actually been sponsored by Dubai. And you can tell that they had very, very deep pockets.
Which reminds me! If you weren’t aware, we relaunched a Patreon campaign and we could really use everyone’s support to keep Geek Beat going! We’ve even got a special level just for our finicky Sheiks. Check it out at geekbeat.tv/Patreon.
None of us are ever going to strap rockets to our backs and have 4k film crews flying around us over foreign nations, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get our own super sweet robotic videographers to chase us around!
A new Quadcopter called Lily is now being made available for pre-order, with shipments promised to begin February 2016. So right off the bat, I’m not going to buy one because I just don’t trust that they’ll actually have them available.
But, if I did, I’d order one for sure because look what this sucker can do! First of all you just toss it in the air, any old way and BAM! It takes off. Then it’ll follow you around at pretty much any reasonable height and distance you might want.
But here’s where it gets good. Ever wanted to fly a copter over water, but worried what would happen if you ditched it? Well, not only is Lily IP 67 waterproof, but it will actually take off right out of the freaking water!!!
I’m so torn! Because they only cost about $500! But I’ve been burned by ordering expensive things one too many times and having them never be delivered, or just taking way, way too long.
They’re billing it as “Beef’s answer to Bacon”, and they say it crisps up and tastes like bacon, but without all the fat and nastiness. So, if you are morally opposed to killing pigs, but you don’t mind knocking off cattle – schmacon is for you! And it’s being launched into retail stores right after this year’s National Restaurant Association show.
If you see some schmacon in the store before I do… send some to the Geek House so we can give it a try.
I’m John P. See ya next time.
