#DJI customers in increasing numbers are having an issue where their #Phantom 4 RF Controller won’t charge. No Fix Yet

“So, I’ve owned the phantom 4 for about a month now, and today when I was supposed to go out flying, I noticed my remote wasn’t fully charged, so i decided to charge it. I didn’t think anymore of it, and when I returned after a while the battery percent was at 54% but it had stopped charging. So i replugged the charger and it indicated it charger for about 30 seconds and then it stopped. This happened every time i tried to charge it. So then I started reading about the problem on the internet, and it was suggested that if the battery wouldnt fully charge, try to discharge it to under 20% and then”  … https://forum.dji.com/thread-72853-1-1.htmlhttp://buff.ly/2v4U28T



Stanford built a ‘4D’ camera for cars, robots and VR

“A team of Stanford scientists have created what could be the perfect “eye”for autonomous vehicles and delivery drones thus far. It’s a 4D camera that can capture nearly 140 degrees of information, allowing it to gather more information than conventional cameras in a single image. The researchers call their design the “first-ever single-lens, wide field of view, light field camera.” It relies on light field photography for the additional info to make its results four dimensional. That means it can observe and record the direction and distance of the light hitting the lens and bundle it with the resulting 2D image.” … http://buff.ly/2uwMOaT

Tiny robot prowls water lines in search of leaks

“Twenty percent of fresh water around the world is lost to leaks, but finding tiny pipe defects is nearly impossible — especially in non-metal ones used in the developing world. MIT researchers have come up with a tiny, badminton bird shaped robot that can cruise through water distribution systems and find smaller leaks than other systems can. The tech could lead to search-and-repair systems that stop water shortages and catch leaks that can cause structural damage.”  … http://buff.ly/2utzBBh
