Game of Thrones: Mapping the places where it was filmed
Game Of Thrones is awesome. Period! Whether you are a fan of the TV show or not, there is no denying that the TV show has some of the most beautiful filming locations across the world. Considering that the travel season is upon us, the social media feeds are full of articles about the Game Of Thrones filming locations. So where are these awesome places?
Mapping the filming locations of Game Of Thrones….
Google returns over 197,000 results for the query and honestly, I think every single tech blog and news agency has already either mapped the locations or has a nice list. One of the most detailed maps was by Telegraph, but it isn’t really an awesome map though.
The top picks by the HERE 360 team on a map is a nice list with markers on a map..
Looking to book a holiday to a particular location? Check out this map from Skyscanner.
It seems even after 6 seasons (almost), there is still room for one more geoawesome map showing the game of thrones filming locations. Did you come across something that’s a good one?
Top 5 most futuristic drone application ideas that already exist
Drones are no longer just the domain of the military. They are already changing the way we deal with many problems and it seems that the possibilities are endless. In fact some of the futuristic drone inventions and technologies have been tested or are being tested as you read that post. Take a look:
Gas sniffing drones
Many of space technologies developed by NASA eventually find its way back to Earth. The sensor that was designed to detect methane in the atmosphere of Mars is now used as a tool to monitor gas pipelines.
Drones for building bridges
Researchers from Zürich programmed a fleet of quadcopters equipped with motorized spools of light-but-strong rope to build a walkable rope bridge that can support the weight of an adult human as they walk across it.
Flying ad sensors
Drones can be used for marketing purposes but not only to shoot commercials or carry around posters. In 2015 AdNear, a Singapore-based location-based marketing company tested a technology to intercept people cellular and Wi-Fi signals to determine users’ locations and send them targeted ads.
Drones with 3D printers
Drones are already bringing a lot of value to the construction market but in the future they will be able to do even more. Researchers are already testing drones equipped with attached 3D printers that could scan and on-site 3D print replacement parts for damaged elements of infrastructure.
Drones with automated defibrillators
Drones and medicine goes well together. UAVs are being used to transport medicines but these days it could be already considered a low-tech solution. Drone robots of the future will carry a defibrillator and will react much faster than an ambulance.
