From the Daily Mail:

It was supposed to provide the perfect festive romantic moment: a mistletoe drone that would get diners at TGI Friday's to kiss on camera.

But the restaurant's plan to lure in festive diners went horribly wrong after one of the machines smashed into a photographer's face at a launch event in New York.

Georgine Benvenuto was left in shock after the machine flew into her face, slicing off the tip of her nose and cutting open a section of her lip.

The ten-inch drone became so entangled in Miss Benvenuto's hair that she even feared she would lose an eye.

This is what drones were really made for.

Visual effects team Corridor Digital has produced an action packed video about a bunch of Parrot drones and remote controlled cars battling "battery bandits" to save the life of their teddy bear friend.

Think "Toy Story," but with a lot more explosions and some '80s montage music.

You can watch the creators talk more about the drones use in the video and how it was made here.

As part of a recent story for "60 Minutes," filmmaker Danny Cooke shot this haunting footage of Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Prypiat in Ukraine.

The nuclear meltdown was 30 years ago, but the reactor, which was simply buried in a tomb, is still very dangerous. According to the CBS report, there is a project underway to come up with a more permanent solution, but it's three quarters of a billion dollars short of its goal.

Cooke calls it "one of the most interesting and dangerous places I've been."

OK Go is back with a new video for their single "I Won't Let You Down," and it's as over the top as you might expect.

Always seemingly trying to one-up themselves, their latest masterpiece is shot via drone, and follows the guys on robotic unicycles as they partake in a massive, synchronized umbrella dance.
