With all the Wars - People often forget the positive uses of Drones or how much fun they can be!

Panama City, Florida: 5-13-2024

With so many Wars going on it is sometimes difficult to remember that Drones and Bots have many positive uses. They are also fun to play with and are for people of all ages.

Several Days ago a severe storm with tornados hit Tallahassee, Florida. Much of the Area was without power or water for a day or more. After helping with the cleanup and the power returned I headed over to Panama City, Florida to check on our properties there.

You can find more information on how bad the storm was online or on my LinkedIn profile: Todd W. Byars, Tallahassee, Florida - Computer Dudes. Do not worry as most everyone has had their power back since Sunday.

Moorebot Scout E for Home and Office Security

Back in January of this year Computer Dudes picked up a Moorebot Scout E to modify for building and factory inspections. We added a Temperature Sensor, A Laser Pointer at a fixed height (for reference and measurements) and a manual retrieval option. Basically it can roll under factory machines, vehicles or into hard to reach areas in buildings or at home.

The project was a success and so we kept a couple of the prototypes - reverting them back to their original form.

Now any of the Computer Dudes can access the Moorebot Scout from their phones - roll it over to the parts storage area and "see" what is physically in inverntory. It saves them a trip to the shop if the parts they need are not there.

A Moorebot was also setup in my home. I programmed it to run a "patrol" around the house and to recognize cats, dogs, and humans. This morning I use it to check on the house, the cats and the weather in Tallahassee.

Other Positive Drone Uses and Training:
Computer Dudes are working on Drone Training and Programming.
Computer Dudes offers a Drone Defense course and hands on training. Here:
Computer Dudes does Android Team Awareness Kit, ATAK, Training with Drones for Land Management and Fire Season here in North Florida.
Computer Dudes are working on Cargo Drones for individuals and companies.
Computer Dudes are researching Cargo Drones to guide large balloons for shade or cooling areas, or on a larger scale to fight global warming.
Computer Dudes do flight training and Drone Games like racing or tag for fun and competition. Human Pilots only no assists from autopilot!

So maybe take a new look at Drones and their many positive uses - then select a Drone for you or your company to try. Remember to check the laws and regulations on Drones and Drone Operations in your Nation, State and City before you select a drone and begin playing or training. Stay safe and Have Fun!

Computer Dudes roll out #solaroneballoon and #solaronedrone balloon to help fight global warming.

on 07 May 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 1

Yesterday on Social Media - LinkedIn - The Computer Dudes, Inc announced several new methods and technology to reduce heat in cities near the equator
or in any "hot zones" where the heat is killing people.

#solaroneballoon - A large, round, flat balloon that can be tethered to provide shade to an area.      Proof of Concept and the First Mylar Prototype Balloon have been ordered and will be in early next week.

#solaronedroneballoon - A drone guided Solar One Balloon.   The Drone can also be used to fly patterns or for "station keeping."

Computer Dudes around the world are working on this and other important issues for people, communities, States and Nations - around the clock.

The Computer Dudes, Global Operations initiates creation and download of a Library for SPACE.

on 29 Apr 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 3

The Computer Dudes - Global Operations - initiates and Library for Humans to carry to Space.

The library will include all topics as well as Literature, Art, Music, Science, Math, Biology, Medical and especially books, charts, maps, art and history of Mankind in Space.
The final version will fit on a compressed USB, ZIP, or SSHD for use by individuals and groups out of range of Library and other Information Servers.

Computer Dudes from the Western United States and Central Europe will be joining the effort as will some Pacific Rim Nations including New Zealand and Australia.

Library Server build in progress!    Linux Clustering.   Air Gapped.   That server will then send to a Hosting Server once the Library is ready to go online.
For SPACE the Library or partial Library will be compressed onto memory chips, drives,  PDA's, Phones, and spacecraft computers.

Once portable - in compressed chip format.     We will also have a portable server option and or 3D computer core option - with solar as primary or backup power.

Computer Dudes Roll Out - LPR Cameras and Automation for Video and Site Security in Small Cities and Rural Areas

on 16 Apr 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 1

After supporting global clients and friends through the recent crisis in the Middle East - Computer Dudes returns to Client Services and Security.

We will be installing our first low cost - 8MP Indoor / Outdoor Cameras.   They are set for HD video and sound day or night and in all weather.

LPN is License Plate Recognition - the cameras are programmed to record everything and to find and focus on people, animals, vehicles and their License Plates.
This is a major upgrade to all Camera Systems.

We are rolling this out in Smaller Cities and Rural Areas.     At a cost of about 20% of what others charge.   We are a service company.   Any hardware - once the need has been determined and plan approved by client - we set up for the client to order directly - which gives them the best warranty and support.

Computer Dudes also supports our products, services, research, programming and anything else we sell.   Generally 1 year or more support for free with contract, service, training or other purchase.
I will return and update this article soon with more details.

Be Prepared, Not Scared.   Share and be kind.   :)Todd

Our #libraryforspace project now has 324 Books 217 Mb Uncompressed - 77 Mb Compressed. :) :) :)

Neither NASA nor the Library of Congress responded to our requests.

So we go around them and directly to the sources.

Being a former Teacher I am setting the library up with Old Books and New and also Textbooks for PreK-12 and College.
More Updates Soon. :)T

It has been a rough 7 days. Starting Last Friday 2 Major Storms hit Tallahassee, Florida.
Most of the area was without power for a couple of days.
Today I completed my storm cleanup and delivered the last of the emergency supplies to those on my list.
Everyone is safe and recovery had begun.
Thanks to all who helped, get some rest and family time when you can.

It does not really matter where you are in Florida or the SE United States you are subject to the weather and power / internet failure even with triple redundant systems.
I just lost a nice post for this website when went to post it and the Internet blinked. Then the power blinked. Now its raining.
In 15 minutes the sun will be out again. Crazy Summer Weather!
