Fridays are always host to freaky news, and today is not the exception. We have an awesome Moto 360 deal, live Coachella content and a story about police using drones.
The Moto 360 is still one of the most desired Android Wear devices. It’s simplicity and elegance, along with a circular build, makes it quite the winner in the world of smart watches. The device is getting older, though, and the price was bound to come down sooner or later.
The Moto 360 is now priced at $179 from Amazon. And this is no odd seller, either. The unit is shipped and sold by Amazon, which makes us suspect this is more than just a temporary discount. We are not sure yet, though. You should probably act fast, just in case.
Opinion: I personally think there are much better watches than the Moto 360 by now. And even the discounted price is nothing special compared to something like the ASUS ZenWatch. It sure is pretty, though.
The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival has just taken off. It will be an eventful weekend over there, but we know many of you who weren’t able to go would love to join the fun. We are here to tell you you can!
In fact, it’s as easy as hitting up YouTube and checking out the live stream. The event is hosted by T-Mobile and you can check out 3 different channels to get your music fix.
Opinion: It sure doesn’t beat going, but it’s the next best thing.
Criminals may have beaten authorities to adopt drones in Mexico, but the Indian police is not letting the same things happen. In fact, a northern Indian city has started testing using drones for crowd control.
In essence, these devices could help authorities control protesters without entering direct conflict. Yes, these are pepper-spraying drones.
“The results were brilliant. We have managed to work out how to use it to precisely target the mob in winds and congested areas.” -Yashasvi Yadav, police chief of Lucknow
The police department has purchased 5 drones at a price of 600,000 rupees (about $9,600) each, and they plan to start being used next month. If needed, of course. These drones can carry about 2 kilograms of pepper and fly up to 1 kilometer away from the remote pilot.
Opinion: The proliferation of drones will really change the way we look at the world. Right now we are in the beginning stages of its spreading, but soon they will be important to society.
