Chainsaw drone ready to star in its own short horror film (Tomorrow Daily 342)
Greetings citizens of the internet.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show known to the universe.
I'm Ashley Esqueda,
And I'm Jeff Cannata, and it is time for headlines.
You know, when I think about drones, a lot of the times I just say to myself, what if I put a chainsaw on one?
And somebody actually did that.
Finnish farmers put together a chainsaw toting drone and remotely flew it around the area slicing icicles, trees and even some poor Snowmen.
It looks really scary, but the creator said the total flight time was about five minutes at a time because of the weight of the chain saw and also mounting the saw meant it had to be flipped upside down making it much less effective.
So if you're wondering what futuristic invention finally took down the killer drone Of the pink balloon.
Well you know how Marcellus is a serious of pink balloons.
When reached for comment Jason Voorhees was like, [SOUND] they're replacing me with robots.
That was the best horror movie I have ever seen in my life.
He was being outsourced.
Easily the best.
Hey, do you like contraptions?
We like contraption.
Marble Mountain is a contraption.
Why don't you check this out.
Ben Tardis is the creator of Marble Mountain, a device that took him three years to build.
It's a modular device with different pieces coming together to create a final product.
Which is a gigantic adventure for marbles.
It includes a roller coaster, a ski jump, a bowling alley, windy city streets, a race track, even a skate park, and a tiny Times Square.
It runs 300 marbles at a time to keep the machine in motion, and it's pretty mesmerizing to watch.
Don't you think?
Actually pretty mesmerizing.
When you watch the video, it's also a little bit relaxing.
It's just that the sound of the machine is very relaxing.
Just marbles everywhere.
I wanna giant marble contraption as my go-to-sleep machine.
That would be delightful.
I think I would really like that.
Okay, so what story should we talk about on Thursday's long show.
I mean, I feel like the future battle between chainsaw wielding machines and balloons is really the one.
Kind of a no-brainer.
I think you're right.
I mean who you got is really the question for you out there.
You got balloons?
We've got chainsaw wielding machines.
Yes please use #HEYTD and tell us if you're team balloon or team drone saw because I want to know.
That says a lot about your personality who you pick in that one.
I think it does.
We won't say which way though, we won't say which one is the good one.
Because it because be either.
We'd love to talk this more when we discuss that in depth on Thursday.
So use the hashtag.
All right guys, that is it for headlines.
Let's check out our phonetographer of the day.
This phonetographer of the day is Brock, living that Brock life with his iPhone 6S.
He wrote to us and said, dear tomorrow daily I shot this on my iPhone 6S on my trip to DC.
