Latest Apple Park Drone Footage Shows Basketball and Tennis Courts

Apple’s new campus is nearing completion.

Apple employees will be able to shoot hoops and play tennis at the company’s new Apple Park headquarters.

Aerial videographer Matthew Roberts released new drone footage Monday of Apple’s new headquarters, spanning 175 acres in Cupertino, Calif.

The drone footage shows some overhead shots of the nearly-finished campus, with several up-close shots of the massive 2.8 million spherical building serving as Apple Park’s centerpiece, where employees will be working. The video also shows new paved paths that crisscross throughout the campus, while big trucks are shown to be transporting trees to their designated planting areas.

Apple aapl is also installing two big basketball and tennis courts for employees to use during their spare time. The courts however, appear to be unfinished as of when the video was recording, depicting a few massive empty lots for the time being.

In September, drone pilot Duncan Sinfield recorded aerial footage of Apple Park in prelude to the company’s latest iPhone launch.

Sinfield’s footage also featured Apple’s new auditorium, the Steve Jobs Theater, where Apple recently held its big media event and unveiled the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, among other products.

AeroVironment’s Quantix drone is all about the data

In the age of technology, businesses are all chasing efficiency. That’s exactly what AeroVironment promises to deliver with its new Quantix drone.

The technology, a combination of a drone and cloud-based analysis service, can be useful for farmers, says Steve Gitlin, vice president of corporate strategy at AeroVironment.

“In many cases, farmers rely on themselves or their people to walk the fields, and if they’re managing large fields in excess of 100 acres or so, then it’s very difficult to walk the entire field in any given unit of time. So they have to rely on their deep experience and sampling.”

IDG Contributor Network: Drones are part of the Internet of Things, drone maker says

We can thank a guy named Todd Harper, who managed to successfully capture foot-cam videos of 3D Robotics’ chief Chris Anderson giving the keynote speech at the InterDrone show earlier this month and put them on YouTube (Parts One and Two). 

InterDrone is a conference and drone expo. 3D Robotics, or 3DR as it’s sometimes called, is major drone maker, with some of its funding from Qualcomm.

I’ve written about Qualcomm’s recent drone chip development in “Intel, Qualcomm getting into drones.”
