Oh me. No need for that whit. You can re-read my comment for further reference when needed. The other prices were from the amazon links in the attached blog post, hence why I said it " may get cheaper if you shopped somewhere else" . All that being said (already) Let's take your $40.36 for electronics and go from there. I'll even take away the PVC glue from the equation. Even dirt cheap, I don't agree that you can get PVC Pipe - 1/2' , PVC pipe 1.5', PVC bushing, PVC couplers, Threaded PVC bushing, PVC cap, and Hex bushing, all for $4.64. The threaded bushing alone when going to Wal-mart is $2.50 by itself. I'll end by saying again, this time with better spelling, even with a higher price, you are getting a cooler product than many on the market. I wasn't trying to be a dick, just pointing out that $45 while catchy sounding, is misleading to recreate what is made in the video.
This is all awesome, but adding up the Amazon cart for this. minus any of the tools of course, is $88+. A few things may get cheaper if you shopped elsewhere but looking at their link on the youtube page the only thing you get for this quoted price is the lights, the battery back and the wifi controller, with no PVC etc in sight. Fairly misleading. Granted it seems for $88 you are getting a cool product that many on the market.
Thanks for the list NFS. A few of these I hadn't checked out. Yet again this comment board fills up with negative posts. I really don't understand. Did every person coming here expect NFS to choose their own personal top music video list? This is their top list. Watch and enjoy. Make your own blog and list if you so desire. Way too much useless negativity.
Any insights into copyrights of people visible in the background? Crowds etc? Seems such a grey area when it comes to news, vs documentary etc. Running and gunning as one person in a foreign country, shooting doc style reality, its pretty much impossible to get releases signed by everyone on camera at any given time.
If you read the title "How IBM's Watson Used AI to Edit the Trailer for Upcoming AI Thriller 'Morgan'" The question is answered. They used it to pull selects for the edit. Thats not clickbait. Its a genuinely interesting application of using AI in its rudimentary form. Granted they could have worded the title better, it still doesn't mislead on the whole. Also this is fairly old news. Now that I think about it the first time I heard they were using AI to edit the trailer and found out it didn't actually edit the trailer I was pissed off too. So your feelings in the end are probably valid on what just took place in this FREE BLOG SITE!
Oh man. I just posted the same thing.. For some reason it showed zero comments. Regardless, all this to say I felt the same way.
