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.

Drones are pretty cool but in the wrong hands they can do some pretty scary things, like spy on people or drop any number of harmful things on an unsuspecting public. Or this:



The point is, it's important to have a defense against drones. That's why the Dutch National Police force have started training eagles to take down drones and look awesome doing it. These birds of prey are the perfect weapon to take down a drone because of their super strong talons and the fact that they can fly.

The only problem so far is that the drone blades could still injure the eagles which means someday our future may include armored eagles.

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."
