Chris Matthieu, the creator of Skynet, a communications platform for the internet of things hopes his creation doesn’t turn out like its namesake. But after watching a video where he was able to control a fleet of three drones using a Leap Motion controller and the Skynet platform, I’m a little concerned. This platform is both simple and powerful enough, that the thought of it becoming both self-aware and vengeful is only sort of crazy.
As a side note, Kevin Tofel and I didn’t do an intro segment this week because I’ve been out sick for a few days. We’ll be back next week, but in the meantime, check out Skynet.
