DJI Spark: The Ultimate “Mini” Drone

While there are lots of drones out there, there’s one that’s hit the market that really takes it a step above the rest. Forget big, bulky and complicated drones that take forever to set up and even longer to figure out how to actually use. Don’t even think about transporting those massive things, they’re too hard to just bring with you everywhere. Instead, take a look at this new drone that’s revolutionizing the drone and making it more accessible and easier to use for everyone.

The DJI Spark is a mini drone that encourages you to “seize the moment” and advertises how it will help you push your creative boundaries. So what is it about Spark that makes it so special versus other drones? Well, to start with, it has an incredible camera in itself, meaning you don’t need to attach any cameras or phones to it in order to take the perfect shot. It has a mechanical gimbal, powerful lens, ½.3” sensor and video is ultra smooth with the great image stabilization.

It will also automatically add a layer of shallow depth of field to your photos for a more artistic look.

However, that’s not all this little drone can do. The quick launch feature is pretty cool and means you can simply activate the drone by having it look at you. That’s right, this drone can recognize your face. You then can control with using your hands, a smartphone or a controller. Controlling with your hands is not only super fun but makes it so incredibly easy to use.

When taking images or video, you can use the QuickShot mode, TapFly mode, ActiveTrack (meaning it will follow you so you don’t need to control it and can act naturally).

What if you’ve already taken your video or images? In that case, it comes with four app features automatic editing templates and many filters.

Some other awesome features that make this drone so easy to use for everyone is the return home feature, meaning Spark can return home with sufficient GPS signal at any point. In case of low battery or connection is lost, Spark will fly back to the preset home point and can also sense obstacles in its path.

This is also a great feature if you’re not great at flying yet-as you’re unlikely to collide Spark into anything else.

One last feature of Spark that’s critical is flight protection. The DJI’s GEO system will let you know when you’re in locations that may cause safety concerns such as airports or stadiums. Using a drone is a big responsibility and one that you shouldn’t take lightly.

With so many awesome features, it’s no wonder that Spark is so popular. At just $499, you can get all of this and you can even choose your color from white to pink to yellow, green or more.

No Girlfriend? There Are… Alternatives

Let me start off by saying that I’m writing this article from the perspective of a straight, nerdy man, because I happen to be one. You’ll hear me throw around the word “girlfriend” a lot, but everything I say is applicable to absolutely anyone, no matter what gender you’re interested in! So with that out of the way…

Finding a girlfriend can be hard, like… really hard. You’ve probably realized by now that it’s not like you see in the movies, with a suave man tossing around some cheesy pickup lines and scoring the girl, and though you may not realize it right now – weather you’re between girlfriends or simply never had one – but this is actually a good thing.

So what’s the deal?

Well, in the short term, you’re a man with urges. It can be frustrating when you go months (or years) without taking a dip in the pool, but you do have options (more on that in a moment) and this personal times gives you an opportunity to improve yourself. Because here’s the secret, women are attracted to men that live interesting lives. Honestly, that’s it. Figure out what hobbies you enjoy by experimenting, and get out there. You’ll probably meet a ton of women DOING these hobbies.

And while you’re working on that, you can practice some other skills as well. Head over to Toy Demon (NSFW), have a look around, and I have a feeling you’ll understand the… thrust, of my point. You see, you can practice some useful skills and work out some pent up urges at the same time. Taking care of things with your hands is fine and well, but if you can practice with something a lot more realistic, then I promise you won’t regret it. That physical connection with a woman is a skill like any other, and thankfully it’s a ton of fun to practice.

Bo-taoshi – Capture The Flag Japanese Style

There are lots of sports world-wide that many North Americans have never heard of and one of the more interesting ones I’ve recently come across is Bo-taoshi. It’s a Japanese sport and is somewhat like capture-the-flag game. This particular game is played by cadets at the National Defense Academy of Japan. 150 individuals are involved in the game and each team of 75 vie for control of a large pole. There are 75 defenders and 75 attackers. A team is considered victorious if they are able to lower the pole of the opposing team. The pole starts off perpendicular to the ground or at a 90 degree angle and the team must bring it down to a thirty-degree angle.

Have a look at how intense and hectic the game can become.

It’s just moving hot air around. The solution is the Evapolar Air Conditioner, the world’s first personal air conditioner. With the Evapolar, you won’t have to worry about tubes and hoses.
