Our friends over at Popular Photography have an interview with director John Downer, whose project Winged Planet premieres tomorrow on the Discovery Channel. It's an amazing avian photography special that gets photos from angles never before seen--because Downer set up his shots in technologically innovative ways. One was mounted on a wooden replica of a vulture and launched into the air, others were mounted on living birds. Check out the full interview here.
The incredible innovations, like drone swarms and perpetual flight, bringing aviation into the world of tomorrow. Plus: today's greatest sci-fi writers predict the future, the science behind the summer's biggest blockbusters, a Doctor Who-themed DIY 'bot, the organs you can do without, and much more.
