New York City police will deploy a camera-outfitted drone above Times Sq.,

along with recent “counter-drone technology” blockading other devices from the home

, where they query of as many as 2 million New Year’s Eve revelers. From a file:

The drone technology is largely the most up-to-date innovation developed by basically the main U.S. police division as it prepares for an annual event that already capabilities a spacious array of anti-terrorism methods. They are going to be inclined along with police airplanes and helicopters as surveillance instruments, mentioned Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Police and federal brokers own worked with lodge staffs one day of the home with a thought to prevent an incident such as the sniper who shot to loss of life fifty 9 outdoor concert-goers from a lodge room excessive above the Las Vegas strip on Oct. 1, 2017. O’Neill mentioned authorities effect now not need any evidence of any credible threat of terrorism for New Year’s Eve.

    • Gatebox is the principle step in opposition to holographic assistants/companions.

      I correct wish Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft realized it. A voice alone is now not upright ample.

      I additionally hope they are going to allow folks to customise the avatar of their assistant (both voice, personality and visual appearance) and even work with companies to promote personalized avatars (ex: Steam/Valve can even promote a GLaDOS avatar, along with both the voice and sarcastic personality of the in-game NPC).

    I am guessing that they desire a cramped better camera scheme than the accepted passion “drone” (quadcopter) has, so their craft can even very effectively be an even bigger than the 10 inches / 250mm veritably inclined by hobbiest. If so, I will be able to even hope they suppose a hexacopter or septicopter. Quadcopters don’t attain effectively when a motor or prop fails. That is now not if truth be told a spot if it be a cramped plastic toy cherish the gargantuan box stores promote, but a malfunctiin can even very effectively be reasonably inconvenient if their drone is a lot bigger and heavier.

        The $1,000-$2,000 are correct a couple of oz. of plastic, so now not an huge deal if it fell on you. Now now not *appealing*, you do now not *need* to drop it to your head, but I will be able to even reasonably that than a baseball. May perchance presumably own to you stick your fingers in the prop at plump throttle, it hurts reasonably injurious for several minutes. Bet how I learned that.

        • On the different hand, as I mentioned, I am guessing NYPD can even suppose one a cramped bigger, now not the in fashion $1,000-$2,000 ones cherish the DJ Mavic or Phantom.

          This text [mcall.com] claims the drone will most definitely be operated away from crowds and tethered to a building. Basically, they’ll also’ve accomplished the identical aspect with a camera on a pole, but methinks NYPD is correct anxious to play with their recent toys.

  • Times Sq. on New Year’s Eve has continuously been a shitshow made for ignorant vacationers. Safe crowds, no lavatories, long traces, pigs in uniform (NYPD) ticketing folks for heroic to drink alcohol. Scamper to a local bar, to to the Central Park flee, throw a celebration for your home and annoy the prissy neighbors, own a flight to a civilized city that is now not so uptight about folks having fun in public.

      Went to Times Sq. to thought the ball drop a couple of years ago. Among the bigger errors in my lifestyles. Went three hours sooner than time. Police locked us in to a 50×50 sq.. May perchance presumably own to you leave for any reason you would possibly perchance well now not re-enter. Very frigid, no place to sit down down down. No lavatories. Worse of all, when the ball dropped handiest about 10% of the folk sq. in the nook can even very effectively thought it.

        • I am reasonably sure hundreds of outright irascible folks thought they own been doing upright. This doesn’t excuse their actions.

    • What’s irascible with being a vacationer? Is it some form of crime? Why attain New Yorkers own so mighty pleasure in taking a thought down on folks that own reach to thought their city? You are going to judge it would possibly perchance perchance well be a gargantuan compliment.

        The OP wasn’t saying that being a vacationer is injurious, but that the Times Sq. ball drop is an event where vacationers judge the’ll own a gargantuan time when in accepted it’s a injurious skills.

        Now now not having been there I fabricate now not own any skills, but on the opposite hand I fabricate now not like playing recent years eve with 1 million of my recent closest chums.

      • Nothing. There’s all the pieces irascible with being an IGNORANT vacationer, duped into waiting spherical for a silly ball to drop while now not being ready to even own a piss. I am frankly ashamed for my city and the idiots policing it.

        • The ceremony is world-illustrious, and being a segment of it makes reasonably a couple of folks elated. Ignorant folks would now not even be responsive to it. So you abominate the vacationers and you abominate your hang folks too? Sounds fair like you’re correct a abominate-stuffed misanthrope who no person must hear to.

          • Cops usually are now not “my hang folks”. Surely, most American police officers are barely human in my e book.

            • Divulge hi there to Ocasio-Cortez for me at your subsequent abominate rally.

              • Among the few first payment folks in US politics this day. (And never lower than spell her title accurately, guy.)

      • In finding: +a thousand General sense.

        Fuck events, in particular in residences.

    • Times Sq. on New Year’s Eve has continuously been a shitshow made for ignorant vacationers.

      I honestly had no concept, but yeah, after reading this [abc7ny.com], it be if truth be told off my bucket checklist. Quote from the native NY ABC news:

      Officers will additionally install over 200 cement blocks as effectively as to more everlasting metal bollards in and spherical Times Sq..

      Bigger than 50 dogs groups will thought the crowds on alert for explosive arena fabric.

      These groups will encompass the newly added German Shepherds and Malinoises.

      For the principle time, the NYPD will deploy its recent rapid of drones to withhold look for over the festivities.

      These attending the festivities will face a couple of screening aspects. Obvious items are prohibited, along with backpacks, spacious baggage, umbrellas, and alcohol.

      Property are now not left checkpoints. At approximately eleven a.m., attendees will most definitely be directed by police officers to web in separate viewing pens. As the pens web populated, the entertainment from Forty third Avenue between Sixth and Eighth Avenues will proceed to switch north up to Central Park, attributable to the ball drop from the southern stop. Please present, attendees who leave sooner than the ball drops are now not ready to acquire entry to their normal viewing home.

      Dear God, that is a couple of severe dystopian shit correct there. You are going to be sniffed by dogs, herded into holding pens, and watched by drones. You would possibly perchance well presumably now not even celebrate the recent 300 and sixty five days with a tumbler of champagne. Rattling it New York, the movie Demolition Man wasn’t purported to be a how-to files.

  • “You are going to thought reasonably a couple of officers with reasonably a couple of substances and long guns,” mentioned O’Neill.” Fuck that celebration!

  • New York City police will deploy a camera-outfitted drone above Times Sq..

    Only one drone? There’s presumably going to be more folks in Times Sq. than the inhabitants of my tiny city. One drone are now not ample. How a couple of dozen ED-209?

    I went to Times Sq. for NYE.

    It used to be *AWFUL*.

    There own been a bunch of police literally on every block nook, pedestian run for several blocks from the sq. used to be controlled by police and folks own been fed into holding pens that own been staggered up from the Sq..

    I will realize crowd modify given how many of us there are. I additionally seen that the total home used to be unnecessary of joy and mirth. Having a dozen police officers on every nook, veritably yelling instructions about what you would possibly perchance even or can now not attain, checking backpacks, it

    • What can even the police officers attain? Nothing. NYC would possibly perchance well be better off if 50% of its police did now not explain up to work and did now not enforce something else but violent crimes. There used to be a time where the NYPD went on “strike” and stopped issuing tickets for “glorious of lifestyles” and “visitors” offenses. Know what took place? Nothing. Violent crime if truth be told went DOWN that month.

      Overpolicing in the US is the spot, now not the answer.
