The brainchild of Christian Jeffries and Cornell Herg, the DroneHackers project was created to show how drone technology can be used to help solve real-world problems. The project seeks to inspire the next generation of makers, builders, DIYers, and other creative people, with something that’s entertaining as well as educational. The ultimate goal of DroneHackers is to develop and market a streaming video service for Netflix or Apple2D, with a feel and excitement similar to the popular television series Mythbusters, but featuring drones. Produced by Charles Zablan, DroneHackers “Episode Zero” was developed to convey the concept. It’s a high-energy reality TV show centering around a group of dronecentric engineers, pilots, and hardcore DIYers as they complete various challenges in designing and building drones to meet specific tasks and specifications. Ultimately, the show aims to help improve aerial robotic technology and discover new applications, while pushing the boundaries of physics and computer programming.
