ICYMI: Control D-ing this show

Today on In Case You Missed It: When this show was announced on Engadget two years ago, we promised to find you the offbeat tech and science news you might have missed while following the previous day’s big headlines. I’ve felt a great responsibility covering innovations from the likes of NASA and MIT, plus discovering promising cancer studies and environmental inventions aimed at saving us all. I’ve learned so much from writing this show for you. And let’s be real, it’s probably the best job in tech journalism since very few autonomous car inventions could go without a Russian dash cam montage and I’ve needed to (ahem) carefully review options before selecting the perfect moment.

With about 500 episodes under ICYMI’s belt, it’s time to move on. This is the last time you’ll see In Case You Missed It on Engadget’s front page and if I’m honest, it’s for the best. ICYMI has been a blast, but doing this show takes a lot of time that we could be using to make even more videos. Right now we’re most excited about the stripped down, informative daily show we plan to unveil next month. Stay tuned!

I’ll still be obsessing about new odd products and science achievements via Twitter, plus working on investigative projects for the new show I produce and host, The Future IRL. We launched it justtt before I went on extended medical leave, because #greattiming.

And by the way, those two things mentioned at the beginning of the show can be found here and here. I also want to thank the great supportive viewers I’ve gotten to know on social media through this show, your news tips and jokes were always a bright spot. You can always find me here: @mskerryd.

UK drone rules will require you to take safety tests

UK drone rules will require you to take safety tests

US officials might be easing up on drone regulations, but their UK counterparts are pushing forward. The British government has instituted rules that require you to not only register any robotic aircraft weighing over 250g (0.55lbs), but to take a "safety awareness" test to prove you understand the drone code. Regulators hope that this will lead to fewer drones flying over airports and otherwise causing havoc in British skies. Not that they're taking any chances -- the UK is also planning wider use of geofencing to prevent drones from flying into dangerous airspace.

The new rules come following a study highlighting the dangers of wayward drones. A smaller drone isn't necessarily safer than its larger alternatives, for example -- many of those more compact models have exposed rotors that can do a lot of damage. A drone weighing around 400 g (0.88lbs) can crack the windscreen of a helicopter, while all but the heaviest drones will have trouble cracking the windscreen of an airliner (and then only at speeds you'd expect beyond the airport). While you might not cause as much chaos as some have feared, you could still create a disaster using a compact drone.

It's nothing new to register drones, of course, and it doesn't appear to have dampened enthusiasm in the US. The test adds a wrinkle, though: how willing are you to buy a drone if you know you'll have to take a quiz? The test likely won't slow sales too much, if at all, but it could give people one more reason to pause before buying a drone on impulse. Manufacturers appear to be in favor of the new rulebook, at any rate -- DJI tells the BBC that the UK is striving for a "reasonable" solution that balances safety with a recognition of the advantages that drones can bring to public life.
