U.S authorities will soon be legally allowed to shoot down your private drones
Shooting down drones in the USA has been a thing for a while. Or at least, attempting to. And while there may be circumstances under which civilians are allowed to shoot down privacy-invading drones, the US government wants their chance, too.
Congress has now passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, which will allow them to “disrupt”, “exercise control”, or “seize or otherwise confiscate” drones that they perceive to be a “credible threat”. But it is not without objection.
New Phase One drone camera will have a 44×33 100MP Sony sensor

Intel enters commercial drone market with the Intel Falcon 8+ for North America
Intel have dabbled a little with drones before. Their RealSense computer vision platform for obstacle navigation features on the Yuneec Typhoon H. They also have the Intel Aero Platform allowing you to build your own drones. But their entry into the commercial drone market is an interesting one. Drone technology at all levels has already come a long way in just a few short years, but a company that has the kind of resources Intel has certainly may shake things up.
Intel’s new Falcon 8+ drone is based on the AscTec Falcon 8. The Falcon 8 is one of the leading commercial aerial platforms in European markets, but is unavailable in North America. This is apparently due to FCC regulations. Intel hopes to overcome these with the Falcon 8+ and is targeting it directly at North American customers.
