If you read my Sunday story about the rising - and controversial - use of drones to help sell real estate, you might be interested in a couple tidbits on the topic:
- There was a gathering in Thief River Falls on Tuesday aimed at further the conversation about how to make Northwest Minnesota a drone hotspot, or a drone technology center. Here's the story from my colleague, Adam Belz.
- A recent item in the Wall Street Journal, and on a tech-focused website called TechCrunch, says that Google has acquired Titan Aerospace, a drone startup that makes high-flying robots that was previously scoped by Facebook as a potential acquisition target.
- To counter the many misconceptions and misinformation about regulations related to unmanned aircraft system (aka drones,) the FAA recently released a new fact sheet that includes what it says are common myths and the corresponding facts.
